Mitten tree will be back in 2015

To the editor:

Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library would like to thank all the library patrons, visitors and residents who so generously donated hats, mittens, gloves, scarves and socks to the Mitten Tree in the Children’s Room.

Kennebunk High School also participated in this mitten drive. The donations filled a huge bag. The contents will be distributed to families supported by the York County Family Shelter Program.

We received 92 pairs of handmade mittens, scarves and hats, as well as 85 store bought items. Because of the generosity of so many kind individuals, children and adults in need will be warm this winter.

Once again, we would like to thank everyone for their kindness and we look forward to making this a yearly event. Happy New Year from the Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library.
