Food Drives can be FUN...
AND Food Drives are essential to The Storehouse.
When you start a food drive you're helping your neighbors in need. It also connects you to your community in a very special way! A great team builder for your business, club, Sunday School class, and Neighborhood.

That's a lot of $$$!
It's all about our volunteers! Bette-Lee Taylor has served at The Storehouse since 2006. And there are scores of others who volunteer here each week. In 2021, our Storehouse team contributed 8,445.5 volunteer hours. That's a savings of more than $241K! That's how a non-profit continues to serve the community, finding great people with a ❤ to help others.
It's also why we talk so often about our volunteers. We could never help as many folks as we do without them!!!
So where did that $241,034.57 come from? There is a national organization that keeps track of charitable info and stats: www.independentsector.org. They calculated the value of each volunteer hour in 2021 at $28.54
