We were proud to have collected and donated more than 1,900 mittens, hats, gloves and scarves during the 2022 MVSB annual Mitten Tree Drive. In addition, MVSB presented a $2 donation match for each item collected for a total of $3,850 split between 11 local childcare organizations throughout the Bank’s footprint.
MVSB has held its annual Mitten Tree Drive each winter since 1979. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Bank collects cold-weather item donations at every MVSB branch location. Employees display them on their “Mitten Tree” and then distributes the items to local organizations that support families in need throughout the winter.
The recipients for this year’s matching donation included:
- Ashland Parks & Recreation After School Program
- Boys & Girls Club of the Lakes Region
- Community Church of Alton After School Program
- Gilford Youth Center
- Kidsworks Learning Center
- Kingswood Youth Center
- Moultonborough Recreation Department Beyond the Bell After School Program
- Pemi Youth Center
- Rochester Child Care Center
- Sandwich Children’s Center
- YMCA of the Seacoast
