Happy 30th Birthday, Open Arms!

Posted 2.1.2016
JTMA1115-030_OpenArms30thLogo_Approved2016 is a big year: it’s Open Arms’ 30th birthday as an organization!

We have much to celebrate together. Thanks to the support of our community over the past three decades, we’ve prepared and delivered more than 4 million meals, nourishing thousands of people in our community living with life-threatening and chronic illnesses.

In true Open Arms fashion, we’re having a bit of fun with this milestone. Our building is now adorned with a giant party hat on the roof above our entryway. And be sure to stop in the building this week – we’re kicking off our birthday year with cupcakes and balloons all week long.

We want to celebrate with you, so please save these birthday celebration dates in 2016:

Saturday, July 23: The big one – our birthday party extravaganza and open house!

Thursday, December 1: The premiere – a screening of our 30th birthday historical film.

What is your best memory of volunteering? Drop us a line with your stories and reflections at [email protected], post on our Facebook page, or use the hashtag #happybdayOAM on Twitter or Instagram.

Thank you for your support and friendship. We look forward to celebrating with you all year long!
