Open Door Mission Prepares for Increased Need During Winter Storm


With a Winter Storm Warning in effect for our area, an increase in guests at Open Door Mission is expected.

“Living on the streets is brutal, and with extreme cold and a lot of snow during a winter storm, it is life threatening,” says Candace Gregory, President/CEO of Open Door Mission.  “We pray that every man, woman and child experiencing homelessness will seek refuge at Open Door Mission or somewhere safe.  Our staff is busy preparing extra food to serve more meals and getting supplies ready.  We will provide extra gloves, hats and scarves to every guest that comes through our doors,” says Gregory.

Open Door Mission is in need of men’s winter gloves, especially larger sizes and bottled water.  Items may be dropped off at Open Door Mission’s Outreach/Donation Centers Tuesday – Thursday 9:30a.m.-6p.m. and Friday – Saturday 8:30a.m.-5p.m.
