Taking Turns to Volunteer

Open Door Mission is so grateful for our faithful kitchen
volunteers, who help us serve over 2,000 hot, nutritious
meals daily!

     After work last week, I decided to go over to the kitchen and spend time with some of our guests and volunteers.
     I met a girl from Utah named Halee who was volunteering.  As we were talking, she made this statement; “Coming to volunteer at Open Door Mission has really impacted my life, each time I look forward to coming to serve.  It has made me more thankful and has touched my heart.” 
     Another volunteer told me, “It’s good to serve because it’s good to help others.  But it also warms our hearts.” 
     The leader of this group said, “Our girls love serving at Open Door Mission so much that I always have to draw names for who can come.” 
     WOW.  Now that’s pretty awesome!  These young ladies LOVE volunteering and serving at Open Door Mission so much that they have to take turns! That makes me super proud of the organization I am privileged to be a part of.
