With colder weather moving in and the holidays fast approaching, Merrimack County Savings Bank (the Merrimack) and Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) will be collecting mittens, hats, gloves and scarves for its annual Mitten Tree drives. A donation of $2 for every item collected through December 16th will be awarded to the NH Food Bank, and earmarked for the local communities in which the donation was made.
New handmade or store-bought mittens, hats, gloves and scarves can be dropped off at any of the local offices between Thanksgiving and December 16th. Non-profits who are in need of mittens, hats, gloves and scarves should contact the Merrimack and MVSB office closest to them. A complete list of offices and hours is available at themerrimack.com and mvsb.com.
“The Mitten Tree is a holiday tradition we are proud to uphold each year,” said Philip Emma, President of the Merrimack. “It’s an honor to support the NH Food Bank, who help so many families in our communities, especially during these cold winter months,” added Rick Wyman, President of MVSB.
