We are so excited about your being here, and the opportunity for us to work together to make a difference in the lives of so many that are in need in our area. With so many businesses shutting their doors and the added expenses in our current economy, many of our families are without food, clothing for their children and other basic needs.
In Matthew 25:40 (KJV) Jesus tells us "verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren ye have done it unto me." We know you join us in wanting to be found "guilty" doing all we can for the Lord. When you read the rest of that Chapter in Matthew, you see just how serious the Lord is about providing for the poor.
This is definitely an opportunity for you to make a difference in peoples lives. Please check our "items needed" page and the "Latest news/Messages" page for a list of what is needed and you will see how very much we, and the families we serve, can use your help .
We are a non profit organization. Every donation is used for the good of the people, NO ONE receives a salary, nothing is sold, unless it would be a case where an item's value is better served in meeting grocery emergencies etc. We simply take your tax deductible donations and match them with needs.
REFERRALS......We do require referrals for families to be able to come to the Storehouse.
This helps cut down on misuse of our donors generosity. Some of the agencies that we work with are Social services (Davidson, Guilford, Forsyth), Cancer services, Crisis ministries, Salvation Army, Health Dept., Goodwill , area churches, FGFRC,etc.
To refer a family in need you will need to do so on your company letter head, or call and speak with us personally. We do schedule clients by appointment, it makes things much easier than having several families in the storehouse at the same time needing the same things. (example: 4 kids needing the one bed that is left)
If your first contact with us is via this website, we would love to hear from you! Please let us know what your needs and questions are -- we will be more than happy to help.
ABOUT US......We have always had a heart for missions and the meeting of needs. For several years we helped in the Virginia/West Virginia areas. But with the increase of unemployment in the Triad and the downturn in our economy, we became more and more aware of the vast amount of needs in this area.
We take God at his word in Matthew 25 when he told us that if we didn't feed the hungry or clothe the naked, etc. it was the same as not doing it to Him. Good gracious, who would want to be guilty of not feeding or clothing the Lord........not us! Nor you, for we have seen so many lives changed by your giving and are so pleased to have the opportunity to work with you.
We know you join us with sincere concern for the families in need in our area. Quite frankly, we all know some of them personally. Think how scary these times are to the families that have been hit the hardest. On behalf of these families, we extend our deepest gratitude to our donors -- every can of food, every item of clothing, every piece of furniture, every dollar.......truly makes a difference. Special thanks to those who donate their time to sort, arrange, load and unload donations and help with pick-ups and deliveries. We truly could not do this without any of you.
May the Lord Bless and Keep you,
Richard and Brenda Ward
