The Mitten Tree tradition is back!
As we have done in the past, we will collect mittens, gloves, scarves, hats, socks and coats to be distributed locally to children needing warm winter clothing. This year we
also will collect new or gently used books. Items can be bought or handmade, but all should be new and unused.
We will have a grocery cart for donations of staple food items to supplement supplies at local food pantries. Items always in demand are macaroni and cheese,
pasta and sauce, canned veggies and fruit, peanut butter, soups, chili and stew.
This year, consider items a child can prepare after school or on a weekend, when there is no adult to provide a meal. Food easily microwaved or eaten cold is
useful. Microwaveable soups and noodles or individual servings of fruit, applesauce, pudding, cold or instant cereals and Gossner’s milk would satisfy a hungry child during a
long weekend. Call the office at 679-2222 for more details.
