This event is open to ages 7+.
Join the DL Staff on March 18th from 2:15 - 3:45PM as we make "WELCOME" signs for the residents of Open Door Shelter in Norwalk, CT. Open Door's mission is to make a direct impact in the greater Norwalk area by guiding every person in the cycle of homelessness towards housing stability.
Open Door provides emergency shelter for individuals and families dealing with homelessness. And they operate a kitchen and grocery pantry that provides food to the community; the kitchen serves hot meals every day, and the pantry provides shelf-stable groceries, baked goods, and fresh produce to low-income individuals and families to help them make ends meet.
Open Doors also operates a number of private residences, providing supportive and affordable housing to those who are working and earning an income but unable to afford market rents in the area. These are the residences that we will be making "WELCOME" signs for :).
