If you have not been to Open Hands since October 21 you are in for a real surprise. The old vacant buildings across the alley from us has been razed. It took two days for that which amazed me. I had the joy of watching some of that demolition from our windows and was a...

How does a place like Open Hands Midway survive as the 'little fish in the big pond'? Let me say, not easily. When I constantly hear how people excitedly support Second Harvest Heartland or Feed My Starving Children I wonder what it would be like to be one of those org...

Another day of life is not guaranteed to us no matter who we are. I was very sad to learn of the passing of two people I dearly enjoyed spending time with. I met Roger Davidson when I first started working at Open Hands back in 2014. To say we mutually liked one anothe...

"If it feels like the right thing to do, don't hesitate, don't regret, just act, you can make a difference." Have you heard words or read words like these ever before? Maybe it's my own paraphrasing but when I have come upon a circumstance where these words come into m...

On Thursday, November 15, Open Hands participated in Give to the Max Day (GTMD). I want to offer a huge THANK YOU to all who made a contribution that day. It was the most successful Give to the Max Day ever! The total donations received were the highest in the history...

I just finished taking my Food Manager Re-certification course this week. I am always amazed at what I learn and how many things Open Hands needs to continually address to make sure we are serving and handling food properly. It may not seem like a big deal to some peop...

I have made no secret in saying that I am a person of faith and because of that, I trust God to guide me. I cannot imagine doing the job I do as Executive Director without being able to take things to God in prayer. Pastor Susan Shoon, the Chaplain who serves in the fa...

Goodbye is such a final word. I have always prefer the phrase 'See ya later' because to me it does not seem so final. It is true that people come and go in our lives. It is true that friendships change. It is true that even life as I know it at Open Hands will change s...
