A semester long clothing and sporting goods drive lead by fundraiser coordinator Nicholas Mutebi comes to fruition brings an abundant amount of smiles and joy all around. From the infants who stay at Opening Doors to our volunteers, everyone was overjoyed at how much love and support the Mutebi family brought from the States. This clothing drive provided a surplus of clothes that will be used to help future students of Opening Doors. With help from cousins from the United Kingdom, this clothing drive has sparked a flame of passion and inspiration to further the mission of Opening Doors.
