Love the Hub

Thank you for visiting the Love the Hub fundraising page.

Lara Lynn Weaver turns 45 years old on December 8th this year.  She first thought about having a big birthday party, food and drink for friends and family.  Then she saw the PBS special "A Place at the Table", on food insecurity in America.  In that moment, she decided that instead of a birthday party she wanted to raise $4,500 for Mother Hubbard's Cupboard. Her birthday present to herself, her community,  and our birthday present to her.  

1 in 4 children in Monroe County suffer from food insecurity every day.  

A $50 donation to The HUB can provide healthy meals to a family of 4 for one month.

At our first Love the Hub event, on Halloween, we raised over $1,000 that will all go directly to Mother Hubbard's Cupboard.  

Upcoming events:  

Tuesday, 12/3 5:00-8:00: Nick's English Hut, 423 E. Kirkwood Ave, Bloomington, IN  in the Back Room - 10% of food and beverage sales and 100% of Natalie's tips will go to the LOVE the HUB effort!  And Mars Jarvis will be selling his hand screenprinted LOVE the HUB t-shirts for $12 each ($10 each shirt goes to The HUB!  And it's Mars' social justice project for Harmony School!!  GO MARS!)

Wednesday, 12/4 12:15 -1:00: Monroe County Court House, 100 Kirkwood Ave., Bloomington, IN -The Grateful Divas preview their 12/7 IU Madrigal Dinner repertoire in the beautifully restored rotunda of the historic county court house. Suggested $5 donation.
