We are looking for donations of new handmade or store-bought mittens, hats, gloves and scarves for our annual Mitten Tree drive, now through December 31. All items will be donated to local nonprofits serving children and families and for each item donated, MVSB will make a $2 contribution that will be evenly split among Interlakes Community Caregivers, GOT LUNCH! Laconia and GOT LUNCH! Ashland.
Mitten Tree donations can be dropped off at any MVSB branch location. Nonprofits 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 a simple way that community members can give back to those in need this holiday season, “ said Rick Wyman, President of MVSB. “It is a holiday tradition we’ve proudly hosted since 1979 and we are excited to contribute to these local organizations helping to ensure local children and families don’t go hungry.”
A donation of $2 for every item collected throughout the drive will be evenly divided and awarded to:
- Interlakes Community Caregivers, a volunteer organization that provides supportive services and information for neighbors to assist them in their daily lives. Visit interlakescares.org for more information.
- GOT LUNCH! Laconia, a collaboration of community partners coming together to help feed children during the summer months. Visit gotlunchlaconia.com for more information.
