Homeless Children head back to school in style

Aug 16, 2012  |     |   General

Children all over the Heartland are heading back to classes. For students living on Open Door Mission Campus, they are going back to school in style thanks to generous donors in the community. Almost 200 homeless and needy children are receiving new clothing and shoes through Open Door Mission’s Adopt-A-Student Program.

One local business, Children’s Physicians Clinic adopted 9 students. When Susan came to bring the items she was greeted by 3 of the students and their mother. As you can see in the photo they were so excited that they got brand new shoes and clothes to wear the first day of school.

Thank you again to everyone who made a difference in the lives of the boys and girls here at Open Door Mission.
