Innovation and Competition

     As Gift in Kind Coordinator, I get to meet with many groups—ranging from businesses to churches to classes to Girl Scout troops to everything in between—who have decided to bless Open Door Mission with drives.
     I would like to share how a little ingenuity, compassion, and (of course) competition brings great blessing to Open Door Mission.  UBS Financial Services had total participation of their 40 employees in a team challenge that led to lots of fun and laughter.
     Team names were the No Namers, Comfort Collectors, Hot Buttered Leprechauns, and (the winners!) Gordo’s Do Gooders.  Together, UBS collected 7,763 personal care items for hungry and homeless men, women, and children at Open Door Mission!  They had to use chairs as carts as there was so much stuff.
     A big, “Thank you!” to UBS for their innovative way of supporting Open Door Mission!  How can your company, small group, class, or family make a difference?  Don’t be afraid to dream big and make it fun!
