One of the outreach organizations that will be featured at the International LWML Convention in Des Moines, IA later in June is the Orphan Grain Train. They have need for Hygiene Kits. Please see information below about the work of the Orphan Grain Train and items needed for the Hygiene Kits. If you would like to create a kit or two, that would be great! Or if you can donateany of the items noted, we will put the kits together. Donations will be accepted through Sunday, June 21st.
Orphan Grain Train is a Christian volunteer network that shares personal and material resources with needy people in America and around the world. Grain Train volunteers gather donations of clothing, medical supplies, food, Christian literature, and other aid to meet real needs. The Orphan Grain Train movement is a loving response to Jesus Christ’s example as a servant and His love for us.
