Orphan Grain Train's International Fest 2019 Has Special Focus On SP Family


On September 21, Orphan Grain Train will hold its annual International Fest fundraiser at its warehouse at 621 East-West Boulevard in Millersville. In addition to raising funds for OGT's worldwide humanitarian shipments for those who are less fortunate, OGT will collect for much-needed medical equipment for the Janeski family.

Ava Janeski, now 4 years old, was diagnosed last October with a rare disease known as acute flaccid myelitis (AFM). Within 24 hours, she went from a happy-go-lucky child with the sniffles to a child who is paralyzed from the neck down.

Ava calls herself Baby Bird and misses playing with her twin brother, who was diagnosed with autism just a few months before Ava's diagnosis of AMF.

Any donations will go toward an adjustable bed and a van equipped with a wheelchair lift. Donations can be made to Orphan Grain Train with “Baby Bird Ava” on the memo line and mailed to OGT, 621 East-West Boulevard, Millersville, Maryland 21108. Tickets for the OGT International Fest are available from Angel Brant, who can be reached at 301-873-1446 or abrandt1446@gmail.com.

For more information on how to help Ava, contact Bonnie Jordan at 443-324-1171.
