Mitten Tree

Mitten Tree

THE MITTEN AND MORE TREE for OLIVET UMC – Collecting Nov. 21st – Jan 3rd.

Our friend M. Tree spent their summer vacationing at the Sabbath (Food Pantry Sharing) Garden with peppers (hot and sweet), tomatoes (big and small), crunchy cukes, rosey radishes, purpley eggplants, butterflies, birds, bugs, and green beans galore! But this month the Mitten and More Tree is moving back inside – look for them in the back of the sanctuary on Sunday November 21st – they’ll be ready to collect multitudes of mittens, mufflers (scarves!), gloves, hats, capes, coats, sweaters, SOCKS…even Blankets! Items can be new or gently used. Donations can also be put in the collection bins near the Social Hall or the church office.

Periodically during the collection period, deliveries will be made to our sister church, Olivet UMC, for their Warming Ministry for all ages and their “Serving our Seniors” (SOS) program for community elders. Tip: Even home-bound seniors love gifts of thick, warm socks!
