Open Door Clean Up Day, Saturday, October 17th!

Join us at The Open Door from 8 am to 12 noon!

This Saturday, October 17th, 2020, will be our Open Door Clean-Up Day! From 8 am to 12 noon, we will be working at The Open Door (12 Stratmore St) to get our building ready to be used again. We need help with all of the scrubbing, scraping, painting, and hauling, so if you are available for any or all of that time, we hope you can join us! Everyone is welcome. Masks and social distancing required, though we will have extra protective wear in case you forget. Contact Open Door Director Mike Ball at for any questions or for more information, and hope to see you this Saturday at The Open Door!
