Does Hobby Lobby donate money to the Fred Phelps Westboro Baptist Church?
There have been rumors stating that the Hobby Lobby chain of craft stores gives financial support to the Westboro Baptist Church, but nothing has been said officially.
According to Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., their company would like to be able to donate to all of the wonderful communities, ministries and organizations. Regrettably, it is not possible due to the thousands of requests they receive annually.
Instead, Hobby Lobby has chosen to donate to, and substantially support several charities and organizations that the Green family has selected based on each charity's specific needs and mission. You can find a list of organizations and charities that HL supports here.
