Press Release from the Livingston County Heath Center
November 15th, 2012: Livingston County Health Center is again sponsoring its annual “Mitten Tree.” The Mitten Tree project provides mittens, gloves, hats and scarves to community residents who cannot afford to purchase the items themselves.
This annual project would not be possible without generous donations each year from churches, service organizations and individuals.
The health center is especially in need of gloves for boys and men, including work gloves or casual wear and items for small children ages 0-5. New or clean used gloves, mittens and hats to fit any size or gender are welcomed as well.
Donations can be dropped off at the health center, located at 800 Adam Drive, during normal business hours: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. If transportation is a problem, health center staff can arrange to pick up your items. Call 646-5506 to find out more.
The Livingston County RSVP office is also collecting new or clean used winter coats. Take your coat donations to their office at 440 Locust or bring them by our office and we will deliver for you. For more information on that project, call the RSVP office at 646-0010.
Individuals are also encouraged to refer residents in need to the health center Mitten Tree and the RSVP Winter Coat Project.
All services of the health center are provided on a non-discriminatory basis.
