Purdue Extension: Expert Resources for COVID-19

Precious Poseys

December 13, 2018

Recognizing the need to improve the lives of Posey County infants and toddlers by providing parents with incentives for healthy behavior and responsible parenting, the Posey County Extension Homemakers accepted the challenge to help address these needs, and in April 1999 opened Precious Poseys.

This special store offers clothing for infants through size 4. Diapers, wipes, shampoo, lotion, shoes, blankets, sippy cups, bottles, monitors and other needed baby items are "purchased" with coupons earned by pregnant teens and women by participating in health and educational programs such as pre-natal care, well-baby clinics, nutrition classes, parenting classes, and graduation from high school.

Precious Poseys is located at 1105 Main Street, Mt. Vernon IN (inside Posey County Thrift Store), and is staffed entirely by volunteers. Hours are 1-3 p.m. on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, 9-11 a.m. on the 2nd Saturday of the month and 9-11 a.m. on the 4th Wednesday of each month,
