My story is more one of "community sharing" than an individual one. I work at a library where the Assistant Librarian started a tradition several years ago. Each year, a day or two after Thanksgiving she puts a tree up in the library. It is completely bare with the exception of a tiny pair of red, white & blue mittens which she herself knitted, which hold a special place at the top of the tree. The community members then donate handmade or bought mittens and gloves, which are placed on the tree. By the time the Ass't Librarian is ready to turn the donations over to the township, the entire tree is covered...you can't see one bit of the tree. The tree has become known as "The Mitten Tree".

People over the years have also started donating hats and scarves. The items (except for the red, white & blue "mascot" pair) are then donated to our area township, who then gives them to those in need. The patrons of our library look forward to this each year and just love to contribute!

Just thought I'd share...

Happy Holidays to you!
