Carol's Baby Pantry

Our Mission

To assist parents in raising healthy children during times of crisis through early intervention, education and support.


Carol’s Baby Pantry has been in existence since 2002. It was founded by Carol Schmidt and Doris Eshelman. They saw a need to assist parents in raising healthy children by providing education, intervention, support, and material necessities. Carol’s Baby Pantry is able to continue the work through the generosity of its leaders, the volunteers, financial support from individuals, the community of churches, organizations, and businesses.
