Once again the mitten tree was a huge success! This year we collected 323 items which included: mittens, hats, scarves, and food donations. We also had a total of $100 worth of cash donations. Each year the collected items and cash donations are brought to the Braham Food Shelf, were they are distributed to families in the Braham area who are in need this holiday season!
