Mitten Tree donations inspire school

Posted: Updated:

Channel 3 news viewers have been knitting and buying items to help fill our mitten tree. The winter accessories include hats, gloves, mittens and scarves. The items you share with us will go to groups that need them like schools and nursing homes.

Our mitten tree inspired the students and staff at Barre Town School to create and bring in their own donations.

WCAX and The UPS Store are aiming for 10,000 items this year. Last year, we got about 7,000.
