Today, Bergan Middle School Students all the way from Fremont, Nebraska arrived at the Open Door Mission with over 200 pair of gently used shoes for the homeless men, women, and children livng on the Open Door Mission Campus.

“We want to promote service with our middle school students and came up with this project”, says Sue Wewel, Team Teacher at Bergan Middle School. “Students made boxes and delivered them to local businesses for people to be able to drop off their donations”

“It is exciting to see students from outside the Metro area think of homeless and needy men, women, and children in the Heartland. says Candace Gregory, President/CEO. Open Door Mission is providing shelter to more than 400 homeless men, women, and children daily and at the Timberlake Outreach Center, we are seeing more low income families and individuals coming for service. In this economy many low income families and individuals are looking for ways to stretch their dollars and shoes for their children and themselves can be expensive.”
