"Mittens" isn't just the nickname of a former presidential candidate, it's also an important piece of clothing!
During advent and stretching through Epiphany, a "mitten, glove, scarf, and hat tree" for adults and children is made available for donations in the Narthex of First Congregational Church. The items donated to the tree are distributed to various Capital Region homeless shelters and other organizations in need during the cold winter months.
In addition, First Congregational offers a way to donate clothing year-round by offering a "blue box" in the small parking lot off of Woodlawn Avenue. Items placed in the box are donated to local shelters and other organizations in need.
We and others welcome your donations!
