Open Doors of Westfield Washington Township, Inc.

The Christmas Toy Program, chaired by LeAnne Zentz, will be collecting toys and gift cards to distribute to children for this Christmas Season. This is a great event to brighten the day of a child on Christmas Day.

LeAnne will be contacting business that have participated in the past and sending out envelopes to Church Representatives to collect toys and Gift Cards value not to exceed $25. These items will need to be donated by December 9th for distribution on December 11th.

Volunteer opportunities could consist of seeking donation, helping sort or assemble the toys, making phone calls, or helping transport these items.

If you are interested in making a donation or volunteering to help with this event, please contact LeAnne Zentz at

Thank You from Open Doors

Now that the food distribution is over, I wanted to thank you once again for your generous donations that make this program a success every year!

We distributed food to 268 families, for a total of 1024 individuals. Thanks to businesses and community members, all canned items were donated, and we received quite a few gift cards and checks that helped with our $7000 Kroger bill for the perishable items (which was the final bill AFTER generous discounts from Kroger)!! Here are a few other important statistics:

We distributed:
3400 canned/boxed items, for a total of 3165 pounds!
3340 pounds of produce
2000 pounds of bread
268 turkeys
253 gallons of milk
285 pumpkin pies
268 boxes of margarine
268 tubs of cool whip

On Friday night, we had about 100 volunteers show up to box up the canned goods, we were only about 20% finished. The turkeys, milk, and pie, cool whip and bags of produce in the back. The cars lined up to receive their food. Clients check in at the front of the building and are given a card with their family number and color coding on it (based on family size), they then drive around where volunteers from the police and fire departments load all the food into the cars.

About 40 of the families asked for their food to be delivered, so we also did that.

Once again, thank you for helping these families be able to celebrate at home with a bountiful Thanksgiving dinner!

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and very blessed Christmas!
