The Mommy Shoppe, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, was started in August 2011 as a mission of the Houserville UMC - House of HOPE at 1320 Houserville Road in State College, PA. We have expanded to serving over 800 clients, staffed entirely by volunteers. Our volunteers process all the donations - sorting clothing by size, pairing socks and shoes, tagging items, hanging clothing on the racks, organizing books, and many other tasks.
The Mommy Shoppe is open Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7-9 PM, Thursdays from 11AM - 2PM, and the 3rd Saturday of each month from 10AM - 2PM.
Registered families may shop for 1 free bag of clothing per child, per month. All clothing items are priced at yard sale prices and are available for sale as well. Other baby items, (when we receive a donation) such as strollers, high chairs, pack 'n play's, bottles, diaper bags, bouncy seats, etc. are also available for purchase at yard sale prices.
COVID UPDATE: Free bag shopping is available by appointment only - one adult per household, no children. Donated items also are accepted by appointment only. Shoppers are welcome during regular hours. Appointments may be scheduled on our home page.
We are unable to accept used cribs, car seats or breast pumps due to liability issues. We also, at this time do NOT accept toys.
We invite you or your group/club to give of your time to volunteer. If you have, or know of a high school student that needs community service hours, please have them contact us at: email@example.com.
