Hope Lutheran Church is involved in a wide variety of activities as we express our thankfulness to God by offering ourselves in service to others.

Orphan Grain Train  

OGT Logo

Orphan Grain Train (OGT) was founded in 1992 to provide relief for human need worldwide by collecting and shipping donations of clothing and shoes, household items, and medical equipment.     The original idea was to run a train through the Midwest United States collecting donated grain that would be shipped to starving orphans in Eastern Europe.   When  railroad operating protocol made that impossible, the first shipment was of clothing and quilts to Latvia.  Since 1992, Orphan Grain Train’s 27 regional locations have delivered more than 25 million meals and 3,202 shipments of humanitarian aid to needy people in various states and 68 countries on 5 continents.    Hope Lutheran Church participates in the activities organized by the Mid-Atlantic Branch.   https://www.ogt.org/branches/mid-atlantic
