'Tis the giving season! We were so thrilled when Leslie Elkins Architecture asked if we had a special destination in mind to repurpose their company holiday party's fully decorated trees and floral centerpieces. The 9-foot tall trees were absolute Christmas perfection and sure to bring a dose of holiday cheer to the living quarters at the Open Door Mission, a local facility designed for our Houstonian neighbors in need who may be struggling with homelessness and substance abuse disorders. The facility houses 125 male residents who will now be able to enjoy the holiday knowing their community cares and wants to share the spirit of the season with them.
In addition to the Christmas trees, the repurposed floral arrangements will add an extra special touch of decor at the Mission's annual Christmas dinner. It's rare that any one non-profit facility can accept such a large delivery of trees, so we are especially excited to work with the Open Door Mission to transform their entire facility during the holiday season and create a sense of hope for the new year ahead. Open Door Mission is a faith and evidence-based recovery and rehabilitation program and facility dedicated to transforming the lives of the most severely addicted, destitute, homeless and disabled men in our community.
