About Us

The Problem
 
With 1 in 6 households (16.1%) facing food insecurity and 1 in 5 children (21.6%) affected by hunger, the needs of the Collin County community are great. The impact of poverty prevents many families from being able to meet their basic needs.
 
Our Response
The mission of The Storehouse of Collin County is to feed, clothe, and care as neighbors in one community.

2009: Feed

In 2009, Sharon Hasley, with the support of St. Andrew United Methodist Church founded The Storehouse as a response to the urgent needs of the surrounding community.
 
The Seven Loaves Food Pantry program opened its doors on May 14, 2009, serving just one family. Since then, the food pantry has grown exponentially to tackle the problem of food insecurity. Today, over 1,000 families depend on the food pantry each month for their nutritional needs. The food pantry maintains a strong partnership with the North Texas Food Bank, and was recognized with the “Partner Agency of the Year - Excellence in Impact Award” in 2018.
 

2010: Clothe

In 2010, Joseph’s Coat clothing closet was added to The Storehouse to meet the clothing needs of our community. From 2010 through 2019, the clothes closet was completely volunteer led. Each week, volunteers clean, sort, organize and distribute clothing donations received from generous donors. Today, Joseph’s Coat provides an average of 4,000 garments monthly at no cost to our neighbors.
 

2010: Care

Project Hope, a mentoring program designed to support women in crisis was also added in 2010 to address the long-term needs of women who have been negatively affected by domestic violence and/or generational poverty. The program is tailored to meet the needs of the participant and consists of mentoring, professional counseling, and financial coaching.
