Become a Stability Partner



As our population ages and the costs of housing, childcare, education, medical and other expenses stretch beyond paychecks, we know our work will continue to be vital to Martinsville & Henry County.

 Our dream for the coming years is to provide not just food, but also hope to stabilize the lives of our clients and help them on a path to self-sufficiency which will build a vibrant community for all. 

Stability Partner's allow the Storehouse to plan for the year ahead, allocating resources.   By making a regular contribution, at any level, you will help us stabilize the lives of the people we serve.

Memorial & Tribute Giving

An in honor/memorial gift is a donation of money made in memory of someone or to commemorate a specific occasion such as a holiday, birthday, wedding or a business-related occasion. 

If someone who has passed away felt passionately about supporting our community, this might be a good way to honor their legacy. 

You may also decide to donate instead of giving holiday gifts to family, friends or clients.
