The Open Door Mission is still in need of some donations ahead of the Christmas holiday.
The mission says this year's Project Santa will look very different due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but they still want to provide a happy holiday for those in need.
This year's Project Santa will be a drive-thru event to encourage social distancing. Community Relations Director Amy Harvey tells WOWT 6 News that they could use some help. “We’re really short on barbies and we really would desire some ethnic barbies. We’re short on basketballs and sports balls, we’re looking for games, and some puzzles as well as coloring books, or any books.”
Harvey says they're hoping to shine some light during these dark times. “We’ve got a need for some of our single men to be adopted for Christmas yet, so we’re hoping people jump in and just provide for them. We think that about 59 or 60 guys could be filled, then they’ll know they’re cared for at Christmas as well,” said Harvey.
Open door Mission’s Project Santa Drive-Thru is happening this Saturday morning. If you’d like to make a donation, toys can be dropped off at any of their outreach centers. You can find those locations on their website.
