Warming Tree Brings in More than 1,000 Items

Thanks to generous donations from our customers, staff, and Board members, we were able to collect 1,055 warming items this year.

We received 95 blankets, which were donated to the Amani Center. The remaining 960 hats, gloves, socks, scarves, and other warming items have gone to Community Action Team.

The Amani Center donates the blankets to children who have received its services. Community Action Team will distribute the other warming items to members of our community in need.

This is the fifth year we have had the Warming Tree, and the second time we have received more than 1,000 warming items. Thank you for your generous donations and support to help members of our community this holiday season!
