Life happens. We know it does.
You can do everything right, and still find yourself asking for help.
For Abby, it was being struck by a drunk driver. Unable to work or drive, she received meals from The Open Door while she recovered.
“I’d be dead without The Open Door,” said Abby. “I’m not kidding.”
For Abby, the meals were a lifeline, and a source of joy.
For Zoe, it was getting laid off. Taking care of her two children and her husband (who has been unable to work due to a stroke) was stressful, and a challenge for Zoe, who was the family breadwinner.
“It’s humbling to really sit back and be like, wow, I was so lucky for so long and I didn’t even realize it,” she said. “It’s everyday people that go to the food pantry. The Open Door was there to help,” she said.
When life happens, The Open Door is the safety net that helps local people like Abby and Zoe during hard times.
