All Open Door wants for Christmas is food!

All Open Door wants for Christmas is food!

We don’t want a lot for Christmas. There is just one thing we need. All we want for Christmas is food! Oh, baby! (You have to sing it in your best Mariah Carey voice)


Although Open Door has many needs, food is a top priority at the night shelter during Christmas. We remain open 365 days a year, and Christmas is no exception. We strive to make Christmas a special time for everyone, but we understand that it can be challenging for some residents staying at the night shelter. We have volunteers who support us throughout the Christmas period to prepare and cook food.


On Christmas Day, we serve a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings to all the residents staying with us, and we invite known rough sleepers to join us. We also provide a roast dinner on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

We offer a variety of delicious treats including chocolates, sweet treats, biscuits, and scrumptious desserts. However, providing these items costs money. If you are able to donate any of the listed items, we would greatly appreciate it. Alternatively, if you’re willing to make a financial donation, we would be equally thankful.

Please help us support the homeless this Christmas. Your support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
The Open Door team
