Give it for Lent 2014 – Storehouse Foodbank

It will come as no surprise that the demand for Storehouse bags steadily grows. So much so that we have now expanded our ‘Drop In’ service to include Tuesday afternoons, as well as Fridays. Thank you for all your contributions. Every tin really does count.

We would like to ‘stock up’ the Storehouse Foodbank for the Spring, which is why we are asking our church and friends to Give it Up for Lent. We would love you to be part of it too.

We know some of us will be considering what little luxury to abstain from for 40 days. Others will be considering fasting. We thought it naturally presents itself as an opportunity to turn any saved money into emergency food donations.

If you would like to be part of Give it Up, would you please help us get the word out?

We are suggesting that families and individuals fill an old shopping bag and bring it back to one of the twenty plus collection Points now in Sudbury and the surrounding areas. A list can be found on our website. Of course, there is no limit to bags that can be filled!

You can also download an A4 display poster, along with a PPT notice slide below from our Give it Up page to help promote it to your church.

Many thanks for your support. Please know that it is never taken for granted. To know more, feel free to drop us a line.

God be with all our churches as we begin the journey to Easter.
