James River Valley Library System Presents 4th Annual Mitten Tree


JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The James River Valley Library System is seeking new or gently used mittens, gloves, hats, and scarves for their fourth annual Mitten Tree.

The library has been collecting these items for the past three years and then donating them to the Salvation Army to be given to those in need.

“[We do it] to help those who may not have those necessary items during this cold weather season,” stated Assistant Library Director Jennifer Senger. “We are asking the community to help us decorate our Mitten Tree for all ages. All donations will be given to the Salvation Army.”

Senger reports that last year, they received an outstanding amount of donations from the community and thanked all those who made it a huge success.

“This year, we want to make it an even bigger success,” she said.

The library will be accepting donations beginning December 1st through January 5th. The tree is located in the Adult Section of the Alfred Dickey Library. To learn more about the Mitten Tree, contact the library at 701-252-2990 or adpl@daktel.com.
