Dear Dr. Piazza:

… the angel answered, “Your prayers and gifts to the poor
have come up as a memory offering before God.” Acts 10:4

On behalf of over 4,000 homeless men given free shelters, meals, clothing and encouragement here last year, I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge with deep gratitude your donation.

I certify that no goods or services were given in exchange for the generous gift and sign this letter as your official tax receipt.

Since 1954, the Open Door Mission has helped meet the shelter, food, clothing and spiritual needs of the homeless in Houston. Compassion and support from the community, such as this gift, make it possible for us to continue this tradition of caring.

Your generous gift will empower us to help make a difference in the lives of men seeking hope through recovery, discipleship and veterans programs at the Mission. We focus on root causes of homelessness, like alcoholism, substance abuse, inadequate education and recovery from medical and mental health problems. We encourage men to hold strong, Christian moral and spiritual values.

Your caring support helps insure that the men served by the Open Door Mission are able to experience and celebrate new hope in their lives.

Open Door Mission does not accept funds from the government or United Way. We are totally dependent on private sector gifts, from foundations, corporations, churches and individuals, to get this great work done.

We hope you have a chance to take a look at our Mission website at

May the Lord richly bless you,

Richard H. Hill, Jr.
Executive Director
