Volunteers Help Open Door Mission in Honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Again this year, hundreds of volunteers helped make a difference in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Volunteers were on-hand at Open Door Mission’s (www.opendoormission.org) campus from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. to provide assistance with sorting and counting toys, sorting clothing and other household items, stocking shelves, and more.
For over 60 years, Open Door Mission has provided services to hungry and homeless men, women, and children each day with the help of caring individuals in the Heartland. “You would not believe the amount of work that is accomplished from the assistance of volunteers,” says Candace Gregory, President/CEO. “When those we serve see other people from the community at Open Door Mission, they know someone cares.”
“In this one day, hundreds of volunteers provided manpower that will go unmatched! It literally impacts the lives of thousands of homeless and near-homeless individuals and families. What a blessing — we are truly grateful! It was a remarkable way to celebrate and honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,” says Gregory.
