Donations pour in for Enterprise mitten tree
Before the below-zero weather hit, warm gear from the Enterprise mitten tree was distributed to MAHUBE-OTWA Head Start (which also received gift bags with stuffed animals, books and other goodies) and the Helping Hands program at Century School.
Rhonda Lageson coordinates the Helping Hands program. She said the 111 pairs of handmade mittens donated by the public last week will ensure the boxes in each pod of classrooms and in the hallway are filled, so that students who need outdoor gear can pick it up.
Warm hats, scarves and socks were also given out. Everything was donated by people stopping in to hang items on the Enterprise mitten tree.
Donations (sizes infant through teens) can be brought to the Enterprise from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.
