Karren's Clothing Cupboard


A little history of Karren’s Clothing Cupboard to help understand where it came from and where we hope it goes. Years ago Hope Mayhew had a desire to build a clothing thrift store that would be run by the church. The rummage sale always has a large amount of clothing and articles left at the end of the sale and we had been sending what was left to Northern Tier Children’s Home thrift store. Over the last year they have stopped taking more items because they are so full. Last winter, while discussing the Spring rummage sale, we didn’t know what to do with the leftover items. During devotions, a thought came to mind, which was presented to Cindy Ellis and then to the United Women of Faith. With their support, we presented to Outreach, then Trustees and the Church Council; all strongly supported. Because we believe that Karren Harter, who passed away a few years ago, would be excited about this project, we decided on the name “Karren’s Clothing Cupboard”.
It is such a blessing to be part of something so important to our community and to know that we belong to a church that has a heart for so many. God Bless you all as you bless others.


Karren’s Clothing Cupboard is open Tuesday mornings from 10 am to 1 pm, Thursday afternoons from 1 pm to 4 pm and the first and third Monday evenings from 6 to 8pm. We will be closed on holidays and if the Horseheads School District is closed for weather conditions.
