Chickasaw County Food Pantry

Posted: Mon, June 11, 2012

The Chickasaw County Food Pantry (New Hampton) would like to thank the community for the generous donations they receive.  "Compared to other food pantries, we are very fortunate for all the donations, food & monetary, we receive.  Some communities are not as fortunate," expressed Nancy Wegner, Food Pantry Coordinator.  The food pantry is open on Friday mornings from 8:45 am to 11:45 am.    

As fortunate as the New Hampton Food Pantry is, they are always looking for donations.  There are several items that they can always use.  They include:  sugar, flour, crackers, packaged cookies, coffee, hygiene products, paper products (toilet paper, paper towels & Kleenex), and laundry detergent.  They seem to always have a need for these products.  The food pantry also has 3 freezers so they do accept meat product such as 1 lb packages of hamburger & hot dogs.  

Of course monetary donations are always welcome as well.  We ask that you remember the food pantry when donating in 2012.  To donate, you can drop stuff off on Friday mornings during the time they are open, or donation items can be dropped off at our office and we will get them to the food pantry.

Carnegie Cultural Center

Posted: Thu, July 23, 2015
The Chickasaw County Community Foundation is a local, non-profit, charitable affiliate of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa.  Each year the Foundation committee hands out grants to local, non-profit organizations.  Throughout the year on our web site, www.newhamptonia.com,  we will try and feature the different organizations that received grants.   This month we visited Carnegie Cultural Center!

The mission of the Carnegie Cultural Center is to establish a vital presence of the arts, history, and cultural awareness for the benefit, enlightenment, and enjoyment of all Chickasaw County residents and visitors. The Carnegie Cultural Center is made possible through a public/private partnership between the City of New Hampton and the Carnegie Cultural Center, a private, non-profit corporation. It is governed by a ten member volunteer board of directors and currently managed by one volunteer administrator and one part-time paid staff assistant. The Carnegie Cultural Center is funded primarily by private donations and its activities are designed and implemented by volunteer committees.  Carnegie Cultural Center has been the recipient of many Chickasaw County Community Foundation grants and Hotel/Motel grants.

Carnegie Cultural Center is home to many different attractions & exhibits; history records of all sorts; and monthly temporary exhibits!  Visit http://www.carnegieculturalcenter.org/ for more information!
