Saratoga spreads the warmth with annual mitten tree

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Winter can be downright cold, and many area children and adults do not have adequate winter wear.

That’s why the Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center is inviting the public to share the warmth of the holiday season by participating in its annual “Mitten Tree” program through December 31st.

Individuals, organizations and youth groups are invited to contribute new, store-bought or handmade mittens, gloves, hats, scarves, or earmuffs to decorate the tree—all sizes, colors and styles are welcome!

The Visitor Center says they will be accepting these items through December 31 and will be donated to various area organizations that support those in need this winter season.

Donations can be placed on the Mitten Tree in the Visitor Center at 297 Broadway, Saratoga Springs: Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

For more information, please call the Visitor Center at 587-3241.
