Currently, instead of preparing meals to feed over 500 children a week in our own kitchen, we must outsouce this duty to a vending company. The cost of outsourcing this task is exorbitant and we are not able to operate much longer under these conditions. We need our kitchen back!

I pray to God every night and ask him to send us an Angel everyday. I ask for hope, I ask for healing, I ask for peace and I ask for joy in our lives. Today you are our Angel.
Thank you very much for paying for my Information Technology classes. It would have been impossible to pay for that education without your help and it should give me the means to break into the business. For that I can’t thank you enough!
Faith Open Door Community Center has helped make the sponsorship experience more personal…and we can see the results.
