for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."
Children’s Storehouse is a group of friends from a few churches who work together to provide this resource for Haringey. Support agencies refer needy Haringey families to them (they mostly receive referrals from Health Visitors and Social Workers). They take good quality used cots, cot bedding, high chairs, prams/ buggies, safety gates, clothes, toys and books for 0-7yr olds. They also visit and distribute these items for free to families who are referred to them. If you have a donation, they have a drop off points at 50 Hermiston Avenue, N8 8NP (plastic shed in front garden) or you can arrange a time to drop off at 1a Willan Road, N17 6NG. Collections can also be arranged. If you would like to be involved, they are looking for volunteers to help sorting and visits.
