December Stats

A New Year has begun, and on behalf of everyone at Storehouse, I wish you a peaceful 2009. As a new year begins so an old one ends, and 2008 ended with a very busy month for Storehouse. In December Storehouse received 77 requests for food bags from 15 different agencies plus some non agency requests. This resulted in 106 food bags being given away to people in need locally. We could not do this without the continuing support of everyone who gives food and toiletries to Storehouse. If you would like to know what we need in particular at the moment, please see the previous posting - we're still running low of the same things.

We have received many comments lately from people connected with some of the agencies that use us as to how much of a difference Storehouse makes to the lives of those who receive the food bags. That difference is what YOU make as you bring just one or two cans; you show love in a practical way to people you don't know and don't even get to meet. None of us knows everything that 2009 has in store for us as individuals, as a church, as a town or even a nation. As we continue to receive a seemingly increasing number of requests for food bags, lets continue to join together to meet these needs and to spread some of God's love for the poor and broken to hurting and needy people in our community in 2009. Thank you for all you do, and may God bless you through this New Year.
