Store Facts....
Mother Hubbard’s Kiddie Cupboard is run by dedicated volunteers from the community. No one receives a salary from Mother Hubbard’s Kiddie Cupboard, so each dollar donated goes toward helping the community. All of the items for sale have either been purchased by money that Mother Hubbard’s has earned from fund raising activities, United Way allocation funds, or has been donated by local businesses, churches, civic organizations, and private citizens. Some items are used, but are in excellent condition.
History...
Mother Hubbard's Kiddie Cupboard opened in November of 1994. There was a noticed need in the community for some action to be taken to help the population of young mothers and their children. Joanne Schamberger, Becky Solt, and Karen Toepfer are the three people who originally developed the concept for the program. Young mothers complete their high school education while learning to be responsible parents.
In 1995 our achievements were recognized and we were elated to receive first place honors in the annual Governor's Hometown Awards.
