At today’s Give Away Day we had 28 visitors representing a total of 75 individuals (when we add all the members of the families represented).
We also gave out reading books, activity books, pens and pencils.
So we hope that all these families have children who are fed AND entertained this summer.
A huge thank you to all who donated and to our volunteers who made this happen.
Our next Give Away Day will be Thursday 29th June 11am to 3pm.
We hope to help local families who might otherwise struggle over the school holidays, having to find extra meals when there are no free school meals, as well as supporting all those needing extra help with their food bills this month.
Family friendly donations especially appreciated – snacks, diluting juice, noodles etc.
Remember – donations can be made at both Nationwide and Morrisons in St Andrews.
We are very excited to partner with Morrisons!
You can donate in store from Wednesday to Saturday this week.
This will really help us in the lead up to our Give Away Day next week where we hope to help families over the school holidays.
Please spread the word!
A big thank you to the staff and children at Acorn Day Nursery near St Andrews who raised this fantastic amount for Storehouse at their recent Open Day.

This has to be signed by a front-line professional e.g health visitor, housing officer, GP, Citizen’s Advice or Job Club etc.
We are pleased to announce that Nationwide, 151 Market Street, St Andrews is now a Storehouse donation drop-off point.
We are delighted to partner with this local business to help those in need in our community.
Usual items of non-perishable food items can be dropped off there during opening hours.
Thank you, Nationwide!
A huge “thank you” to all our volunteers and donors who made today’s Give Away Day an amazing success.
We helped 27 families – that’s 77 individuals! That is amazing and we couldn’t have done it without your generosity. Thank you.
Our next Give Away Day will be Thursday 30th March.
We set out tables with all our stock and people with invitations come and take as many bags as they would like. We do this around school holiday times to help families who at other times would rely on free school meals.
We’d really appreciate family friendly donations for the next three weeks – snacks, cartons of juice, lunches – pasta-n-sauce, tuna, spaghetti hoops – anything you can think of!
We’d also like Easter Eggs and Easter treats.
Thank you for your generosity that allows us to be so generous!
Please note the change in times when donations for Storehouse can be dropped off at the Vineyard Centre:
Tuesdays 11am to 1pm
Wednesdays 10am to 4pm
Thursdays 10am to 4pm
Storehouse is getting busier all the time, so we would love to add to our pool of volunteers to help at our drop-in sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays 11am to 1pm.
If that is something you might be interested in, please come along to our information evening on FRIDAY 24th FEB, 8pm at the Vineyard Centre, 62A Largo Road, St Andrews.
