Dine Out to End Hunger

May 15, 2015  |     |   General

      Last night I had the opportunity to represent Open Door Mission at our monthly event, Dine Out to End Hunger.  Each month, different restaurants in and around the Omaha-Metro area partner with the Mission for one day, allowing a percentage of their earning on that day to benefit the hungry, homeless, and hurting on our campus.
     Our community partner this month was Noodles & Company, and it was such a blessing to be able to represent Open Door Mission at their restaurant.  I was allowed the opportunity to share about the myriad of opportunities for our community to get involved.  It brings me joy to be able to talk about how people can serve.
     There were a few families that came to Dine Out to End Hunger who were very familiar with the mission and are regular volunteers!  It was awesome to see some familiar faces at this event.  Many people also who came out last night because they saw our event on Facebook or heard about it from the radio.  I do some work on the public relations side at the Mission, and it was so fulfilling to hear that our efforts are being recognized and acknowledged.
     I came up with a simile that describes some of the work that I do at the Mission: I am like a megaphone, sharing the important happenings to our community.  I am thankful to work in fulltime ministry to bring Open Door Mission’s volunteers, donors, and advocates closer to the Kingdom.
     Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  – Ephesians 5:20
