“For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing….. I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters; you were doing it to me.”
– Matthew 24 v 34-40.
My name is Adriana and I have been serving at The Storehouse for a few years.
Providing people with basic needs such as food and clothing goes a long way towards restoring dignity and bringing renewed hope. I believe that in doing just that, you are showing people Jesus and His heart for His people.
It is an absolute pleasure helping out at The Storehouse. It is a volunteering opportunity that anyone can do in their own time – whatever time you have to give, be it a quick hour or a full day, you can make a difference.
I am grateful every single day for the life I have been blessed with. I have not gone to bed hungry, felt real thirst, experienced cold due to a lack of clothing, nor have I had to sleep outside on a hard, cold pavement. I am acutely aware that millions of people worldwide and thousands on our doorstep cannot say the same.
I choose to volunteer not because I’ve been there, but because I haven’t.
