Community youth group helps Mother’s Cupboard

The community youth group in Hettinger enjoys putting efforts into service projects for the bet-terment of the community. Recently the group volunteered their time at Mother’s Cupboard, a place where people can donate winter clothing, and where people in need can come and re-ceive a coat, gloves, boots or any other winter apparel designed for warmth, you can even get sweaters.

The community youth group in Hettinger enjoys putting efforts into service projects for the bet-terment of the community. Recently the group volunteered their time at Mother’s Cupboard, a place where people can donate winter clothing, and where people in need can come and re-ceive a coat, gloves, boots or any other winter apparel designed for warmth, you can even get sweaters.

The community youth group, which meets twice a month, is comprised of 7th-graders all the way up to seniors in high school who represent multiple denominations in Hettinger. Along with their bi-monthly meetings, they try to get out into the town and donate their time through various service projects.

Previous projects include food drives, ditch clean up, and yard work projects.

The project, two weeks in the making, was designed to help the organization better manage their inventory. The group of 15 kids gathered at the location and spent about an hour and a half cleaning up the are where the clothing is house. They organized the inventory, put the coats in the right order and the boots too, re-organized the hats and gloves and made it easier to pick out the right sizes for anyone needed the clothing.

““Now if anybody needs those things, they can get in there and find what they need right away,” said Paul Lint, Methodist Pastor in Hettinger.

After pondering what the group should do next, Lint contacted Jody LeFebre and the organiza-tion started there. Lint said the group enjoyed their time at Mother’s Cupboard, and really like helping out the community in any way they can.

“The kids have a great time doing it,” Lint said.

Lint also added that after his group was in there, it should make it a little easier for people in need to find what they want with out having to dig through pile of clothing looking for the right sizes.

“Now if anybody needs those things, they can get in there and find what they need right away,” Lint said.

As far as the community youth group is concerned, Lint wants people to know that any one is welcome.

“Everybody’s invited,” Lint said.

The group meets twice a month, on the first and third Sunday, at 4 p.m. at the Hettinger Method-ist Church.
