Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard is grateful for donations

To the editor:

Created in response to Hurricane Agnes in 1972, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard helps to feed about 500 people each month. The volunteers who support this food bank come from many different churches. We receive no funding from the state or federal government but instead rely on the generosity of churches, organizations, and individuals. This month we are especially grateful for the food drives organized by Kish Bank and the Boy Scouts, a gift from Giant, and fresh bread from Panera’s in State College.

To feed 500 people is expensive. Our budget is severely challenged by the sharp increase in the number of families needing assistance. We will be grateful for your financial support either as a one-time gift or as monthly contributions. Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, and all of your gift would benefit the needy in our area.

If you need information on how to make a donation, please contact me at rector@stmark-lewistown.org or phone (814) 571-0687.

If you would like to visit us on Water Street, we are open 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday through Thursday and 2 to 5 p.m. Friday.
