Happy Hands Mitten Tree accepting donatinos

The Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center is sponsoring its annual “Happy Hands Mitten Tree” program, through December 31st.  Donations can be placed on the Happy Hands Mitten Tree in the Visitor Center at 297 Broadway Monday-Saturday from 9:00-5:00.

Individuals, organizations and youth groups are invited to contribute mittens or gloves as well as any other warm gear to the tree.  Items can be purchased or handmade, and all sizes, colors and styles are welcome!   Those in need of warm gear are invited to come into the Visitor Center during the holiday season through the month of December.  All remaining items will be donated to local charities for distribution throughout the winter months.

 In Saratoga Springs mittens and gloves are essential to winter comfort, but there are many children and adults who do not have anything warm for their hands. For people who are looking for a way to share during the holiday season, adding a pair of mittens to the “Happy Hands Tree” is a small way to make a big impact in someone’s life: Warm hands are happy hands! Last year over 200 items were collected; the goal is to set a new record this year. 
For more information on the Happy Hands Mitten Tree, sponsored by the Visitor Center, please call Johnnie Roberts at 587-3241.
