Yahoo for Wahoo Middle School

So often we discount young people as being selfish or living in their own little world, but let me tell you about some very special future leaders. On their own a trio of young men from Wahoo Middle School chose to do a coat drive for Open Door Mission. They presented it to their teacher Mr. Harris, who let them do all the planning with a little guidance and direction from him. They arranged for a speaker to come and share about Open Door Mission with the whole student body, they began working towards their goal of 100 coats; and they succeed in collecting 200 coats for the homeless and near homeless.

Then they went a step further-they came to take a tour to see how Open Door Mission works at helping others Like so many before, they were amazed at the scope of what is done through and at Open Door Mission to help those in community, homeless and near homeless living in poverty. They saw how what they did will directly make a difference in someone’s life, in a family’s life, in a community’s life. I was so thrilled to hear them talk about coming back to volunteer or organize another drive and most important to be an ambassador in Wahoo for the Open Door Mission. As we finished our tour and I left them to return home they brought tears to my eyes and joy to heart when as a group of six they said they plan to make Open Door Mission their mission and place of service.others. Like so many before, they were amazed at the scope of what is done thro
Open Door Mission is blessed to have young leaders step forward with compassion and caring. Their families, school and communities should be very proud of them. They blessed my day in so many ways. If you would like to bless the Open Door Mission please contact me, I would love to be of service.
