Thank You

I want to say thank you to all the wonderful companies, churches, organizations and people in the Omaha area. It is my job to set up drives for Open Door Mission – especially Project Santa which provides new toys for children. I was beginning to get a little worried as the toys weren’t arriving very fast. A big reason being our snowy weather. Finally, as the weather started to clear, companies, churches, groups, and individuals began bringing their new toy donations.

However, we still need more toys to provide presents for over 4,500 children that would not otherwise get Christmas presents. It has been hard on everyone economically this past year, but there are still those that can and choose to give in order to make a difference in the lives of others. We need people with generous and compassionate hearts to bring new toys to Open Door Mission. Your gifts will bless many children and their families by giving them hope.

We still need new unwrapped toys – primarily the following items:

  • Teen Board Games
  • Puzzles – all ages
  • Baby dolls
  • Barbies
  • Play sets – children 1-2

Thank you, again, to all who have given – you are making such a difference. Bless all of you who will give to meet this need. We appreciate your making a difference in children’s lives. May you all have a very merry and wonderful Christmas!
