Easter is just around the corner and Open Door Mission wants to make sure all our guests, from the children to adults are part of the celebration. We give out Easter baskets to all the children living on our campus and if we have extras they go to the children of families that use the Timberlake Outreach Center. If you want to fill those Easter baskets, saved all these past years, and give a child a gift of joy and fun we will gladly accept them.
Did you buy too much candy and treats for your baskets? Open Door Mission would love your “extras” to put in the sack lunches that go to those living on the streets. It is amazing how a special treat of candy can brighten one’s day. (We will even take the candy after Easter). Homemade Easter cards are a blessing we give out to all that come and share the Easter meals with us. A heartfelt handwritten blessing is a unique way to touch a heart and give hope.
