open door news

it’s not too late to give!
november 12th, 2018


We know that many of you were planning to attend the ODM banquet last night but were not able to due to the snow or other schedule conflicts. But it’s not too late to give! I want to encourage you to take a minute right now and make a generous donation. Click here to donate and it will count toward our banquet total.

Last night was a fun evening, especially with our new interactive foyer experience before dinner. We enjoyed shooting basketballs with the youth ministry, throwing darts with Street2Life Print Shop, making care packets for the homeless, seeing into the Still Waters homes with virtual reality goggles, meeting staff and participants, and hanging out with Randy and hearing about his new book, “Lessons Learned from the Bottom of the Stairs.”  

Our total year-end need before last night was $757,000 to finish in the black.  We were able to raise just over $250,000 due to the great generosity of those who attended. Thank you all so much.

Would you help us continue to raise the needed year end funds? Please take a moment to give today.

ODM Banquet is still on tonight!

We are looking forward to seeing everyone tonight (November 11th). We want to encourage you to come out in spite of the weather. You will not regret making the trip!
