December News from Jen Ramming, Co-Founder and Director

Invest in a Child. Strengthen our Community.

Dear Friends,

Please consider an end of year gift to OpenDoors of Asheville. With your help we support local children at risk, many of whom are born into multi-generational poverty.

Poverty is not their doing, but it IS their undoing.

Please help us BREAK THE CYCLE.

Through your giving, suffering is suspended and poverty is interrupted.

OpenDoors is 100% volunteer driven so your gift goes a long way toward happiness through enrichment and education.. and that progress is sustained through mentoring and advocacy.

We work from the inside and the outside of our schools and neighborhoods.

OpenDoors includes more than…
70 Volunteers, MANY teachers and tutors, 60 Donating Artists, 9 Schools and 7 public housing Neighborhoods, 43 OpenDoors kids (and growing), and their families

OpenDoors is ALL OF US doing for Asheville’s children what we do for our own.

Thank you for helping us to make a lasting difference.

With much gratitude & hope for the future,
