Believe it or not…Easter is fast approaching. At Open Door Mission we start planning for holidays way in advance. We will be serving 100 or more children, not to forget the adults too. (Numbers fluctuate as families move in and out) As we look forward to Easter for the children we need items for the various activities. We also need volunteers. We need “stuffed” plastic eggs for the Easter Egg Hunt. The eggs can have small toys or candy and treats.
We love giving our men and women “Easter Care Kits”. The Easter Care kits are simple, yet so appreciated. For the Women’s kits: Chocolate bunny or cross, pair of fuzzy socks, deodorant, razor and shaving cream* Please put items in a small pink or purple bag. For the Men’s: Chocolate bunny or cross, pair of tube socks, deodorant, razor and shaving cream* Please put these items in a small blue or green bag.
Easter candy is always appreciated for the sack lunches Open Door Mission packs for Street of Omaha. We send out 300-500 sack lunches a day Monday through Friday. The lunches feed those living on the streets. If you can help with any of these projects please do. Your donations will be a sweet Blessing in so many ways.
