Waterloo business offers bargains benefiting House of Hope

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- More than 100 homeless, single mothers and their children are on a waiting list to get into the House of Hope in Waterloo.

A downtown Waterloo business is sponsoring a fundraiser this weekend for the House of Hope.

Two 4 Tots consignment store is selling items for $1 through Saturday. All proceeds go to House of Hope programs.

"During the recession right now, the people hit the hardest are young, single parents.They don't have enough education, they don't have enough work history, they can't compete. There aren't enough jobs anyway and they can't compete at all," says House of Hope Executive Director Mary Schmitt.

The House of Hope on the 200 block of Walnut Street in Waterloo serves ten families at a time.

They can live there for two years.

Two 4 Tots is located at 622 Sycamore Street in Waterloo.
