Thanks to everyone who stopped by WOWT on Thursday and helped make our Water and Fan Drive a success.
For eight-and-a-half hours, a steady stream of generous Channel 6 viewers dropped off 150 fans and 6,000 bottles of water along with other items to help us help the Open Door Mission, Stephen Center and Siena/Francis House. The items were delivered to the shelters on Friday.
“For WOWT, their viewers and Two Men and a Truck, to put on a drive like this for the Open Door Mission means a lot to us so we just thank you on behalf of the Open Door Mission and the many homeless men women and children that we serve every day,” said the mission’s James Cummings.
Last year, the Open Door Mission went through 28,000 bottles of water in July alone.
“This is great, this is absolutely what we needed,” said Siena/Francis House executive director Mike Saklar. "We rely totally on help from our community for most of our supplies and our food and clothing and all the other donations that we use here."
