Mission: Dedicated to the well-being and education of the children in our community.
Vision: Closing the gap between opportunity and achievement for the children in our community.
 
 
Just two more weeks until Christmas! Can you believe it? The end of the year is just around the corner, and as families get ready to celebrate the holidays, our wish is that you will consider a financial gift to Community Storehouse. We need your contributions to help us provide for the greatest needs of our local children. Your support means that children in Keller and Northwest School Districts will receive the educational support and resources they need, and that they will have food and clothing, so that they can reach their potential in school.
 
You've probably seen our newsletter and holiday card by now. Any gift you can give at the end of the year will help make a difference in the lives of local kids. Your donations are tax-deductible and provide for the well-being and educational needs of children in our community!
 
Give a gift that makes a real difference this year!
