North Texas Giving Day 2019 Series: Who Is My Neighbor?
Our video series finale "The Neighbors" is now available!
This week, we wrap up our story series by looking at how great things happen when our community comes together to give generously:
This week's video was narrated by Ben Skye, our Director of Communications & Culture. Ben joined The Storehouse team in May 2017. Today, he is responsible for telling The Storehouse story and sharing it with our community.
“Because I know that I would not have made it this far in life without the generosity and kindness of others. Giving is a powerful practice that resets my focus and reminds me to count my blessings." - Ben
Chapter Four: The Stranger
There is great joy in witnessing the generosity of a community inspired to give.
This week's video was narrated by Debbie Vice, our Director of Joseph's Coat. Debbie was one of the founding members of our clothes closet and has led the program on a volunteer basis for the past 9 years.
“Because I believe in everything we do and constantly see a growing need in our community." - Debbie
A $50 gift helps 3 children stay warm with winter coats from our Joseph's Coat clothing closet.
Chapter Three: The Stranger
Love challenges us to redefine the word "neighbor." What does the word neighbor mean to you?
This week's video was narrated by Terry Breedlove, our Director of Seven Loaves and Chief Financial Officer. Terry has been managing the operations of our food pantry since Spring 2012.
“Because upon realizing what God has given to me, I am compelled to pass that gift of grace along to others." - Terry
A $100 gift provides 4 families with approximately 2 weeks of groceries through our Seven Loaves Food Pantry:
Chapter Two: The "Heroes"
Fear can easily harden us to the needs of our neighbors. Which question do we ask ourselves when faced with the fear of helping others?
This week's video was narrated by Deborah Hill LPC-S, our Director of Project Hope. Deborah has led our Project Hope Program since May 2012.
“Because I love our community and I have a passion for sharing hope with our neighbors in crisis." - Deborah
A $250 gift provides 4 Professional Counseling Sessions offered free of charge to the women served by Project Hope. Learn more about the program:
Chapter One: The Traveler
You might have heard this story before. How does this story challenge our definition of what it means "to be a neighbor?"
Our Chapter One video was narrated by Jacque Devonport, our Director of Volunteer Services. Jacque has served at The Storehouse since November 2013.
“Because I love what The Storehouse does for our community and serving our neighbors fills my heart with joy." - Jacque
Our volunteers are the hands and feet that fulfill our mission. If you have not volunteered with us, we would love to have you!
