OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The new school year can be stressful, that's why the Open Door Mission is offering some fun this weekend.

On Saturday, they are holding their annual community picnic. During the picnic, Open Door Mission's Free Health and Healing volunteers will be providing free back to school physicals for children experiencing homelessness or in need.

The picnic will offer fresh nutritious meals and fun carnival games. The public is welcome to attend. The picnic takes place at the Garland Thompson Men's Center at 2705 N 20th Street. The event starts at 10 o'clock.

"We love bringing people together with food and fun. The kids are getting ready to go back to school and we want them to look forward to the new school year," Candace Gregory said, President and CEO of the Open Door Mission.
