Back to School

Even though kids have only been out of school for a few weeks, here at The Open Door we're already gearing up for our Back to School Program!  Last year we were able to help approximately 200 kids start school with backpacks filled with school supplies.

We are asking for donations of school supplies to be dropped off by Monday, 24 August 2020.  This will help us to ensure that kids get the backpacks before school starts (we will accept donations after this date as we always get emergency cases throughout the year).
