• What we'll do
Open Door Outreach invites you to attend the first-Monday-of-the-month Meetup at Riviera Maya for Happy Hour --featuring cheap drinks and free chips and salsa! (It also has good, inexpensive food for any who want dinner). Come enjoy great conversation with great people, and also receive the latest updates on community events and volunteer opportunities! Oh, if you arrive late, no worries. :) Riviera Maya is located at the junction of I-630 and the Fair Park Blvd exit.
On the 2nd Saturday of every month, we prepare dinner for 40 women & children residents at the domestic violence shelter Women and Children First (they so appreciate it!). Once we've prepared the meal, then one ODO'er will drive it to the confidential domestic violence shelter location. No need to bring an ingredient. Bethany provides everything. However, she encourages donations up to $10 to offset the cost. This is one of our funnest and most fulfilling events - hope to see you there!
This is our FUN once-per-month (2nd Sundays) cleanup of Main Street, LR, between 12th & 19th Streets. We meet in front of Community Bakery at I-630 & Main St. and our route returns us to Community Bakery (some ODO’ers enjoy staying there afterwards for coffee/chat/dessert!).
Historic Arkansas Museum

Free wine, craft beer, food, live music, socializing --and Art-- at the Historic Arkansas Museum (HAM) for "2nd Friday Art Night”! This is a fun social outing for ODOers; no volunteering necessary. Event is officially from 5PM to 8PM, but most of us arrive around 5:30 or later. Brian will have his cell[masked] if you can’t find the group. After an hour or so at HAM, we often walk to the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies or to the Old State House Museum.
