The community cupboard, built and designed by Twin Lakes Woodworking and Remodeling, looks like a miniature house and contains nonperishable items, such as canned food and toiletries, for anyone in need to take for free. Shirley says she has been bringing food every month or so since summer.
The Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce put the cupboard in Hickory Park as a project for the Twin Lakes Adult Leadership Network. The group was founded in 1991 for individuals with a desire to improve the quality of life in the Twin Lakes Area. The front of the cupboard says "Take what you need, give what you can" and exemplifies the community spirit and giving nature of area residents.
Anyone with information regarding the vandalism to the structure, future attempts at vandalism, or suspicious activity in the area is encouraged to call the Mountain Home Police Department at 870-425-6336.
