This program is unique because it is community-based, our supplies are all donations and the staff is 100% volunteer. Donations of both foods for snacks, monetary donations for field trips and parties as well as purchasing materials that are used by the students are made by generous donors from our community and beyond. If anyone is interested in making a donation it can be made through Mattie N. Dixon Community Cupboard and designated for Rising Stars Homework Club. The club is a labor of love; where children receive a wide range of support and services at no cost.

Mattie N. Dixon Community Cupboard was founded in 1973 when Ms. Mattie learned of people in her neighborhood struggling to put food on the table for their families. She recruited friends, family, and fellow parishioners to help collect and distribute food. Almost 50 years later, we are still fulfilling her mission.

We serve just over 400 families (over 1,200 individuals) in Ambler and the surrounding 12 zip codes within Montgomery County. Our primary focus is to provide food, clothing, and other essentials for families that fall within 150% of the state poverty level. The wraparound services that we offer are examples of the ways that we incorporate the needs our clients express to us.

This fiscal year, we have distributed over 365,000 pounds of food/non-food items as well as shared over 25,000 items from our clothing boutique. We continue to get new families signing up to be clients so we anticipate those figures to continue to grow next year.
