What we're about

Open Door Outreach is a terrific group for volunteerism, community involvement, and friendship! ODO is secular, nonpolitical, and open to everyone. There are no membership fees and no charges to attend any meetups; any donations are entirely optional. On the first Monday of each month, we meet to plan and learn about volunteer and community activities --and we also enjoy great people and great conversation! However, attending the monthly meetings is not required, we have numerous get togethers each month for participating in various types of volunteer, community, and fun social activities. So... this is a great Meetup spot for anyone who enjoys fun, friendship, and helping the community. :)
