We Will Run To YOU

These volunteers helped make sack lunches for our Streets of
Omaha program.  What a blessing!

     Volunteer Michael jumped out of the van and ran a sack lunch to a man he saw sitting under a bridge.  He was out volunteering for Open Door Mission’s Streets of Omaha program.
     “I am very grateful for you,” said the man.  “A lot of people don’t pay attention to me, or they run the other way when they see me.”
     Our Volunteer Michael told him, “We will run TO YOU every time.”
     The man’s face lit up with joy.
      The sad reality is, the people that we serve are used to people running away from them, not looking them in the eyes.  Some even get called horrible names.  In our ministry, we don’t know everyone’s situation or story, but we do know that people need love.  Our Streets of Omaha volunteers look forward to sharing that love each and every day.
     Some of our volunteers such as Mike volunteer all day, making lunches in the morning and then handing them out in the afternoon.  Lives of people on the streets as well as our volunteers’ lives are being changed here at Open Door Mission.  We would love you to be a part of that
