Provena Covenant Medical Center bringing warmth to the needy through Mitten Tree

The Provena Covenant Medical Center Foundation and volunteers will bring some warmth to the needy this holiday season through the annual Mitten Tree. The Mitten Tree has been a tradition at Provena Covenant since 1996.
For a donation of $5, a paper mitten with your special holiday message will be displayed on a tree in the lobby at Provena Covenant Medical Center. Volunteers have been working throughout the year to knit hats, scarves and mittens, which will be distributed to local charities, nursing homes, care centers and area shelters as part of the Mitten Tree project.
Tax-deductible donations may be made at the Provena Covenant Gift Shop from now through Dec. 31. All proceeds go the Sister Mary Gabriel Curby fund to help the poor. Gift Shop hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday through Sunday.
Throughout the rest of this year, stop by and watch the tree fill with mittens as the spirit of caring grows. For more information on the Provena Covenant Foundation Mitten Tree, contact Angela Reinhart at 337-4714.

I love the idea of a Mitten Tree, I think I might use that idea to raise money for my local charity - Trixie Tree
