The Storehouse provides free, new clothing for the 0-12 year old children of referred families in need. The service is offered free of charge to referred families and referring agencies. Funding is provided by generous individuals, community groups and businesses who believe in the vision of ‘Families Helping Families’, whereby each of us are part of a family, be it in our home, church, workplace or community, and many of us may need a helping hand at some point in the journey.
The Storehouse offers new clothing, not second hand, for two main reasons:
(i) we believe organisations such as the Smith Family, The Salvos and Clothesline, among others, already meet the need for second hand items extraordinarily well, and importantly, are better placed to sort and distribute them.
(ii) our heart is to give a GIFT to these families in crisis that reflects their dignity and surprises them with the generosity of other families from The Storehouse support network that simply want to inject hope and practical help into their difficult circumstances.
