Storehouse supports West Virginia flood victims

July 14, 2016

The storehouse hosted a several week long stuff the truck campaign to support the West Virginia flood victims in July. The organization was able to fill three 18 wheelers with food, clothing, and supplies for the families of WV.


In addition to the stuff the truck campaign, a benefit concert was held on July 16. The event, a wrap-up to the Stuff-the-Truck effort by Lyrics on the Lake and The Musicpreneur Storhouse, raised more than $2,000 in addition to the three tractor trailer loads of goods collected. The concert was held in conjunction with a similar concert in Chesterfield, VA.

The trailers were delivered July 17 to the National Guard Armory in Richwood, West Virginia, the only distribution point for all the community’s daily needs during the disaster. Richwood, a town of about 2,000 people, lost its only grocery store, drugstore and Dollar General store. Donations included 15 tons of dog food, 5,400 rolls of paper towels, 17,280 bottles of water as well as a multitude of bleach, cleaning supplies, non-perishable foods, household items, clothing, blankets, pillows and more.

Another recipient of this effort was the Herbert Hoover High School in Clendenin, West Virginia, whose choral program lost everything except four laminated pictures of their choirs. In addition to money, the school received a new drum set, 250 school desks and 250 backpacks filled with school supplies.

The concerts, presented by Lyrics on the Lake, featured noted Nashville singer/songwriter Brinn Black. She was joined by North Carolina natives Jonathan Wells and Renn Anderson, who are now also based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Franklin County native Matt Powell was added last minute as a surprise guest. He opened the show, then later joined Black, Wells and Anderson onstage for an impromptu quartet performance. Powell, the son of the late Alan (A.P.) Powell and Jennifer Bennett, has been plying his trade as a singer/songwriter in Austin, Texas for 20 years. In town for a month-long visit, he heard about the benefit concert and offered to add his talents to the effort.

Though the concert was the official end of the Stuff-the-Truck campaign, donations can still be made online at
