An Opportunity to Give Back

During the holidays opportunities abound to open your heart and possibly your pocketbook. What better way to give back during Thanksgiving and Christmas than locally?
The programs sponsored by the Community Storehouse benefit those in the Keller, Colleyville and Southlake communities. They cover more than 300 square miles, which you can imagine affects a large number of families and most importantly, children.
“As the holidays are quickly approaching it is a time to celebrate the children in our local community we serve,” said Megan Stiller of Community Storehouse. “Christmas and Thanksgiving times are hard for families who are living at or below the poverty guidelines, so we try and provide the items to help them celebrate with their loved ones.”
Although during this time hearts overflow with caring and hope for these individuals, it is also important to remember they need assistance year round.
“As the year is wrapping up we ask that those more fortunate remember the Community Storehouse and know that our programs do not end after Christmas but continue throughout the entire year,” Stiller said. “We are here 365 days of the year providing educational programs to help children succeed in school.”
Such programs include events to help children improve their reading skills. In addition, Community Storehouse makes available support that may provide breakfast and lunch for the kiddos during the school year.
“Community Storehouse is focused on the education and well being of the children in our community—providing the basic essentials and educational programs so children can remain and be successful in the classroom,” Stiller said. “This year we are projected to provide almost 43,000 services.”
