Celebrate Winter: The Mitten Tree and More

The Mitten Tree at Pickering Public Library -  Give the Gift of Warmth

Calling all knitters, crocheters, sewers, makers and givers!

Inspired by the children’s book the Mitten Tree by Candace Christiansen, Pickering Public Library will be having a Mitten Tree this year. We are calling out to the public to Pay it Forward by making, giving and/or buying mittens, hats, gloves or scarves to hang them on our Mitten Tree or in and throughout the Library! All mittens, hats, gloves, scarves and anything else associated with warmth for those in need over the winter months will be donated to Herizon House. www.herizonhouse.com.

Please note: We can only accept mittens, gloves, scarves and hats. Any other extras like clothing, toys and household items should be donated to Herizon House directly.

Starting November 29 and running until December 22. At any Pickering Public Library branch.
