Our Mission

Jennifer Pahlka once said, “when one neighbor helps another, we strengthen our communities.”  This message is the foundation for our mission.
 
Made By Mary was created with the hope of expanding caring and compassion in our community and minimizing the chance that anyone feels like they are alone in it.

Teaspoons of Testimonials

My daughter was so surprised and happy to receive these Christmas candies. And my husband… he was speechless. It takes a lot to make him that way. He just keeps saying, “that was really great. That’s just really great.” Thank you!

Came home tonight from a family member’s wake to find cookies from Made By Mary. A month ago I donated cooking supplies to you to help support our community. I had no idea how soon our lives would flip upside down and we would need a pick me up.  Thank you for all that you do. I wish we didn’t need the support but at times when you do, it is so wonderful to have amazing people in our town.

“I really want to thank you again for being a bright light in someone’s dark day. It’s easy for people to not do anything because they can’t fix the person’s problem but it’s not our job to fix. It is our job to try to help make the person not feel so alone and maybe get them to smile if only for a few seconds. Thank you for making this world, especially our little part of it, that much better.”

Donations to Made by Mary Community

At this time, the team at Made By Mary is an organization dedicated to community service. As of January 1, 2019, we are undecided as to whether we will be pursuing status as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. We are, however, in the process of trademarking the Made By Mary name.

If you would like to make a contribution to the efforts of Made By Mary, we would most certainly appreciate it. Please know, however, that all donations would be considered a gift and not a tax-deductible donation. All monetary contributions will go to covering the costs of trademarking the Made By Mary name, website development/maintenance and potentially applying to become a non-profit organization. We would gladly disclose the utilization of any donated funds upon request.
