We have numerous corporate volunteers who have helped us at Open Door, from painting our outside space, to providing plants and shrubs, and landscaping our garden.
Local churches and schools support us through out the year and especially at Harvest, with an ongoing supply of food that sees us through the winter months.
Supporters often ask what we would like donated, so we have put together a list of items that would be gratefully received.
