Easing Hunger Since 2000
Lynn Staggs first launched this mission in single room and later a building on 7th Avenue. Since moving to our Spartanburg Highway location, the Storehouse has continued to grow larger, as the needs of individuals and families increased in Henderson County. In 2019, we distributed more than 420,000 lbs. of food to our neighbors in need. We assisted 1212 families with food in 2020.
Most people pick-up their food boxes, but 50 of our seniors receive a monthly delivery. Volunteer teams pack and deliver the food boxes, and since January 2020, non-food essentials as well. Of course, we are here to assist emergency food needs, as they arise.
Each Christmas since 2000, "Blessings in Boxes" has delivered gifts for children referred from schools and other agencies. More than 1500 children were blessed during Christmas 2020.
