The Mommy Shoppe llc, 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, State College, PA. We have expanded to serving over 1500 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 7PM-9 PM, Thursdays from 11AM - 2PM, and the 3rd Saturday of each month from 10AM - 2PM.
We will not be open on the following Holidays: July 4th, Thanksgiving, and from Christmas Eve through January 2nd.
Unexpected Shoppe closures will be posted on our Facebook page.
Registered families may shop for 1 free bag of clothing per child, per 30 days. Appointments are required for "Free Bag Shopping". All clothing items are priced at yard sale prices and are available for sale as well. Other baby items, such as strollers, high chairs, pack 'n plays, bottles, diaper bags, bouncy seats, etc. are also available for purchase at yard sale prices. We reserve the right to limit quantities on available items.
We are unable to accept used cribs, car seats or breast pumps due to liability issues.
We invite you to volunteer during our regular open hours. We ask that you commit to 4 or more shifts. Children may not accompany adults during volunteer hours. Due to space and time constraints, we request no more than 2 new volunteers at a time. Please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to make arrangements for shifts.
