Open Door Mission Holds Drive-Thrus for COVID-19 Resources
Due to COVID-19 precautions, Open Door Mission (www.opendoormission.org) had to pause some of their regular programs, including their Outreach Centers where typically 1,000 people a day are served. Still wanting to make sure these people were able to receive their food, diapers, and toiletries during the crisis, Open Door Mission held drive-thrus on March 28, during which over 4,500 people were served, and on April 18, during which 5,232 people were served. Because the Mission implemented a Shelter in Place Policy to protect guests and staff, no volunteers were on campus to help distribute the food so about 30 Open Door Mission staff did the job.
Open Door Mission is a Gospel Rescue Mission founded in 1954 committed to breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty. To learn more, visit www.opendoormission.org or contact Amy Harvey at (402) 829-1511 / AHarvey@opendoormission.org with further questions.
