Over the past four years, we have helped many families and individuals in crisis in our local community to know that there is somebody up there that loves them.
Storehouse works in close partnership with local social services, CAB, the Job Centre, housing trusts and No. 72, (a family advisory centre).we are hoping to donate over 200 Christmas hampers for families and individuals who have been referred to us in the Stour Valley area.
Jesus told us that the poor are always with us and it is the hard-pressed and downtrodden that God favours. This Christmas we want to demonstrate that simple, but profound truth, by showing a little kindness to the families and individuals in crisis in our community. It all comes with ‘no strings attached’
You may know someone that might benefit from a Storehouse Christmas Hamper. If so, we would love to hear from you. Please don’t be shy in asking!
