10th annual mitten tree

When you’re out and about shopping for Christmas, please extend your giving beyond your family. Please buy a gift for a needy child in our community.

Last Tuesday, the Mitten Tree went up.

This is the TENTH year for this awesome program that is run by the Gasport Lions Club.

Here’s how it works…

There is a tree is located out front of the Gasport post office at the corner of Main Street and Route 31. New this year, are trees located at the Middleport Post Office, Drum Oil, and the Roy-Hart Schools.

Take a mitten from the tree and give a gift that is appropriate to the age/gender of the child noted on the mitten.

Attach the mitten to the unwrapped gift and drop it off at one of the drop off sites listed on the mitten. The Lions Club will distribute the gifts in time for the holidays.

Please participate and make Christmas a little better for a child – maybe even your neighbor – who is in need. That’s what the holiday is all about.
