When the flood hit Boyd County on March 13, 2019, the Orphan Grain Train from Norfolk, NE was first on the scene with water, food, clothing and much needed supplies. Without the help of these people, many would have found it very difficult to begin the recovery process.
At the 2019 Nebraska School Nutrition Association State Conference held in Kearney, a request was made to name the Orphan Grain Train in Norfolk, NE, the recipient of our annual fund raiser, Pennies A Day. It was also then decided to donate all the proceeds from our basket raffle as well. Because of all the generous donations from our members, NSNA was able to make a donation to the OGT in the amount of $2,836.00.
When asked what project they had in mind to use the money for, immediately Mr Trampe said they had a bike project in mind but no funding at the time. Not long after our visit with Mr Trampe, I received this message from him.
Bethel Bible College in Ghana received a shipment of aid which included bicycles from the Norfolk warehouse. OGT received this heartfelt ‘Thank you’ from one of the boys that received a bike, his only mode of transportation.
I am very grateful to you and your ministry, I used to trek long distances to School, but since you gave me other friends ab bicycle, it has really helped us to go to School with ease. I want to stand on behalf of my friends and all those who benefited from your generosity and thank you so so much for this great support you have given to boost our lives and education. May God richly bless you.
A big thank you to all our NSNA members who found it in their hearts to give so generously.
