God's Storehouse

God’s Storehouse, a local non-profit food pantry serving Danville and Pittsylvania County, has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the LB Charitable Foundation.

This grant will enable God’s Storehouse to purchase food to be distributed to the local community and will assist in covering some operating expenses.

Representatives from the LB Charitable Foundation will present the grant at God’s Storehouse Feb. 24 at 2 p.m. 

“This is a new grant opportunity for God’s Storehouse and I am very grateful to the LB Charitable Foundation for choosing to award these funds to us. We are very honored and blessed by their generosity,” said Karen Harris, executive director of God’s Storehouse. “On average, we serve approximately 129 people every day and serve many who are unemployed due to COVID. These funds will greatly aid our ability to serve the hungry in our area.” 

LB Charitable Foundation is a “family-led foundation whose primary objectives are philanthropy and well-being.” Their mission is to “support non-profit organizations, human and health services, homeless shelters, military veterans, religious causes, humane societies and animal shelters." 

God's Storehouse is a non-profit food pantry that was founded in 1987 by a group of faith community leaders and local pastors. It continues to be supported by over 150 faith communities, numerous individuals, organizations and businesses.

Their mission is to collaborate with the local faith-based community to collect food, distribute food resources to those in need and promote nutrition in Danville and Pittsylvania County.
