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 Royalton and Hartland.

This is the fifteenth year for the awesome Mitten Tree program that is run by the Gasport Lions Club.

Here’s how it works…

A tree is located out front of the Gasport post office, another is outside the Middleport post office, and there are some mittens available at the front desk of the Royalton Town Hall. Take a mitten 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 Drum Oil or the Royalton-Hartland Elementary School.

The Lions Club will distribute the gifts in time for the holidays. They typically serve around 125 children.

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.

The deadline to drop-off your gifts is Friday, December 10th.
