Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) is requesting newly handmade or store-bought mittens, hats, gloves and scarves for their annual Mitten Tree drive, now through December 31st. The Mitten Tree drive awards $2 for every item collected. This year’s dollar contribution is designated for Boulder Point Veteran Housing.
Newly handmade or store-bought mittens, hats, gloves and scarves can be dropped off at MVSB branch locations. Non-profits in need of mittens, hats, gloves and scarves should contact the Bank office closest to them. A complete list of offices and hours are available at mvsb.com.
“The Mitten Tree is an annual holiday tradition we’ve proudly hosted since 1979,” said Rick Wyman, President of MVSB.“We’re excited to contribute to Boulder Point, a permanent housing facility, for vulnerable, low-income, disabled and homeless veterans.”
Boulder Point, a Harbor Homes veterans housing facility located in Plymouth, NH, offers twenty-five one-bedroom apartments to veterans experiencing homelessness, as well as five affordable (unsubsidized) two-bedroom apartments. It offers permanent housing to the area’s most vulnerable, low-income, disabled and homeless veterans. Harbor Homes is based in Nashua, NH, and serves low-income individuals and families who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or living with mental illness and other disabilities.
