As a result of so many requests, plus more than 10 bags going out in the first 2 days of September, we are desperately short of many items and would very much appreciate the following (please feel free to drop any items in at the Vineyard Centre):
- any food that can be eaten without heating (e.g. ring-pull cans, peanuts, biscuits etc)
- tinned meat (we have 1 tin left), fish, vegetables*, potatoes
- pasta sauces, instant/pot noodles, instant mash
- fruit & desserts
- small cereals, tea bags*
- toiletries, especially deodorant*, toothpaste*, shower gel*, soap*
It is wonderful that we are able to help so many people in this practical way, showing them compassion in a way that impacts their lives. When we give just one or two cans we really do make a difference, so thank you for everything that you do give.
On a slightly different tack, if you are involved with a local school that is going to be holding a Harvest celebration of any kind, you could maybe mention to the staff that Storehouse would gladly take any non-perishable items that are donated. We have already written to most of the local schools, but any additional support would be most welcome. Thank you.
