Karen Libhart and Judy Muchler, volunteers of the Hope Shop at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Mifflinburg, pose with some of the 50 baskets the women, along with other volunteers, put together on Friday morning. The baskets contained everyday necessities that cannot be purchased with food stamps, such as towels, laundry detergent, toilet paper, and toothpaste. Items in the baskets were donated by local community members, as well as paid for by some of the money donated by the "The Apple Dumpling Gang" and Trivent. "The Apple Dumpling Gang" sells apple dumplings every Friday in October and then gives 60% of their profits to the Hope Shop, which was about $3600 and Thrivent then matched that amount. The laundry detergent and softener was donated by Diakon's Katheryn's Kloset. The Hope Shop is open every third Friday of the month and all items are free to anyone who needs. Muchler said, "I personally have a passion for helping others. I know what it's like to be without someing."
