Have you ever had that wonderful feeling when you’ve been generous and you know you’ve made a tiny difference to someone’s day? It’s a warm fuzzy feeling, it’s a feeling that comes without needing thanks, it’s a great feeling! Letting the guy out into the traffic ahead of you… giving the lady the pound for her shopping trolley…jumping in and giving the person in the queue, the small amount of change they need for their shopping. All random acts of kindness and generosity, but all very much appreciated by the people they affect.
Storehouse was featured in the Journal at the beginning of the month (if you’re interested, read it here) and as a result of that and a note on Netmums, people have donated with such generosity, it blows us away. People give, with no expectation of return or thanks, but it’s people like this that help us to continue to help individuals and families across the region supported through Storehouse referrals.
We want to say a big THANK YOU to all who donated and continue to do so. From baby items and cots, to food, toiletries, towels, sheets, clothing and shoes. All of the items are sorted and made ready for anyone who needs them who are referred by a support agency.
Our dream is for no individual to be in need, but for now we want to see our stock room empty (and re-filled) as the items are given to those people who need assistance. We work with over 30 agencies across Tyneside and the list is growing.
If you would like to help in any way please email us or phone 07834 388444. If you’re feeling generous … we accept donations of anything you’d be happy to receive yourself.
Thank You! – Storehouse
