A Christian organization, the Orphan Grain Train gathers supplies and redistributes to those who are in need both in the United States and internationally. From providing supplies, to offering assistance in disaster areas, the Orphan Grain Train has been operating since 1992. In that time, it has grown into an international operation reaching people all across the world. However, despite their size and multi-million dollar budget, they add a personal touch by encouraging the donation of handmade items such as pillowcase dresses, sleeping mats, or quilts.
The reality is that, across the globe, hungry, destitute people still live day to day without warm clothing, nourishing food, clean water, shelter or medical care. In 1992 Pastor Ray Wilke saw that need face to face, and determined to make a positive impact on as many people as possible. Today, Orphan Grain Train has shipped to 64 different countries.
