MOUNT CARROLL – Pitter Patter Pantry in Mount Carroll recently entered a partnership with Christine Albright, owner of Bearly Used Children's Resale Store and More in Freeport.

According to a news release, Earlene Froelich will pick up and deliver gently-used clothing and accessories to Pitter Patter.

The pantry, at 855 S. Mill St., Mount Carroll, provides basic nursery necessities for Carroll County families enrolled in the Women, Infants, and Children program at the county health department. Parents in the program can earn "Baby Bucks" to spend at the pantry by attending WIC or doctor's appointments, going to the library, and meeting other criteria.

Regular pantry hours are 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month, and 10 a.m. to noon the first Saturday of the month, from March through November.

To donate to the pantry or volunteer, email Wallander at gwallander711@gmail.com or call her at 815-493-6076 or 815-440-5616.
