Open Door Mission - Community PicnicLast Saturday, Open Door Mission hosted it’s fourth annual Community Picnic. It was a great day of fellowship, food, and fun. Over 2,000 men, women, and children enjoyed a day filled with barbeque, games, live music, and good company on a beautiful summer day.

Terry Brown, a UPS employee and long-time friend of Open Door Mission coordinated the event. Dr. Pepper, Frito Lay and Omaha Steaks partnered with the Mission to make this a great day.

Also, families were able to “shop”, everything is free, for clothing, personal care items, and household bric-a-brac. The Timberlake Outreach Center is available for needy individuals and families who are struggling week to week just to make ends meet.

It is such a pleasure to work along side so many people from this great community. Thank you for caring for the homeless and near-homeless in the heartland.
