Julie Run To End Hunger

No Julie Run To End Hunger in 2020 - Alternative Sponsorship Opportunities!

As an alternative will you Sponsor Open Door and the work we do every day in our community?

Due to covid 19 world wide pandemic this event is canceled.  It is our largest fund raiser.  These funds then provide food or crisis support all year.  Creative opportunity!

Open Door Outreach Center & Resale Store ask that this year you Sponsor Open Door Outreach Center and the work we do instead of sponsoring our annual run.  We will promote your company on social media,  facebook, enews and our website. 

This is a fun way to feed the hungry, clothe the needy and give real help to those struggling to care for their families.  You can make a difference now in your community!

Contact Karen L. Myers, Executive Director today to discuss how we can promote your business in our community!   248-360-2930 ext 103.
