Kids Know the Difference

Aug 12, 2008  |     |   General

Anna and Caleb visited Open Door Mission for the first time yesterday (Monday).

It seems mom and dad had a garage sale on Saturday. Anna and Caleb decided to take advantage of the extra neighborhood traffic, so they set up a lemonade stand. It was a hot weekend, and they brought in a whopping $22 plus some change.

Both wanted to donate the cash to Open Door Mission. So, bright and early Monday morning, mom brought her two entrepreneurs to the Mission. Anna and Caleb saw individuals and families who live here because they have no home of their own. They saw Open Door Mission’s Bright Space, a wonderful play room designed just for kids.

They smelled good food cooking in the kitchen, and understood that Open Door Mission is a place that provides food for the hungry, and shelter for the homeless.

They knew that they’d given their money to the right place.

You can experience the same thing that Anna and Caleb did. Come to Open Door Mission, take a tour, and see for yourself. Just like the kids, you’ll understand the difference.
