Delta Open Door, a charity which helps the homeless get back
on their feet, may be able to start some new programs thanks to a $500 donation
by the Swanton American Legion.
Open Door provides 12 beds, a GED classroom and other
services for those without a place to stay. Leaders say they call it a
transitional shelter because Open Door works to help people find jobs and save
enough money to move out on their own.
All of the shelter's funding comes from private donations
and revenue from the thrift shop they operate.
"A thrift store helps us pay our bills but it
doesn't help us get new programs up and running," said Executive Director
The organization works with many veterans, which inspired the
American Legion to donate.
"A lot of times there's
veterans out there who just think everyone's forgot about them and that's just
not true," said Swanton American Legion Commander Bernie Gustwiller.
