Seeds For Kids - A Volunteer Planting Work Day
Help us teach the children here at Open Door about growing and preserving fresh, healthy produce! Please bring vegetable seeds or plants, fruit trees or bushes, gardening or canning supplies, and man power to our planting work day at the Open Door Unit One Campus. Volunteers of all ages are welcome anytime to help with our gardening project.
Kitchen Rennovation Project
In September 2013, we completed a rennovation of Unit One's kitchen. In many homes, the kitchen is the epicenter, and the kitchen at Open Door is no exception. After school, kids gather around the dining room table to complete homework, while the house parents prepare a family-style dinner. Over these meals, the kids and house parents connect over the days events, discussing problems and receiving wise counsel. For these reasons, it was important to the administration at Open Door to invest in upgrades to the kitchen, to provide a safe, cheerful environment to facilitate these family moments.
The new kitchen design boasts of beautiful new white cabinets, which really brighten and enlarge the space, soft green tile to compliment new dark green countertops. The houseparents can safely and efficiently prepare meals on upgraded stainless steel appliances.
We're incredibly grateful to those who contributed to this project through monetary or in-kind donations. Thanks for helping us to make Open Door's Unit One not just a house, but a home.
