Branigan Library Sends Mitten Tree Donations to Local Shelters 2017
The Thomas Branigan Memorial Library, 200 E. Picacho Ave., experienced another successful year of giving with its annual Mitten Tree project. The public donated more than 330 items including gloves, hats, scarves and blankets for the Gospel Rescue Mission, Community of Hope, and La Casa.
Library associates sorted and boxed the items for pick-up on Dec. 22. “We are truly pleased with how well the mitten tree turned out this year,” said Margaret Neill, Library Administrator. “People were very generous and thoughtful. The mitten tree project will return for the 2018 holiday season.”
