Monday, November 20th 2017 - Friday, December 22nd 2017
As mentioned above, once again it is time for our annual Mitten Tree! This year’s campaign began on Monday, November 20 and continues through Friday, December 15. We welcome donations of mittens, scarves, hats, gloves, and socks. Items can be store-bought or, if you’re handy, can be hand knitted or crocheted. Some folks work throughout the year preparing items for this community service activity. All donations stay here in Columbia: they are taken to the Columbia Clothing Bank (which, in turn, supplies the winter shelters.) Our community always responds with great kindness to this campaign – each year, our library is near the top of the list for total items donated. Special thanks to Mitzi Sanchez and her dedicated band of crocheters who meet here every other Saturday morning – we appreciate all of their donations for the community.
