12 Dec Project Santa Makes Holidays Happier For Kids
Every fall as the temperatures drop, the staff at Open Door Mission in Omaha, Nebraska, begins planning its annual Project Santa. Throughout the year, individuals and families donate new toys for distribution to over 6,000 families in need in the Omaha metropolitan community.
With the help of Good360 and other partners, Open Door Mission was able to create nearly 900 beauty care packs for girls ages 13-18. These pampering beauty products help girls develop their self-confidence.
Throughout the month of December, volunteers of all ages from churches and local companies have been busy at Open Door Mission sorting donations and assembling gift bags, including the beauty care packs, by gender and age. As parents, grandparents and guardians come by to pick up their child’s holiday gifts, they are extremely appreciative of the community’s generosity and the thoughtfulness of neighbors.
