 WALTON’S Mitten Tree!

14598729618_ff06eff2b1_b During the entire month of November 2015, the Walton Outreach Committee will have the two Mitten Trees up in Bronte Hall.

We ask that you help us decorate them by by bringing a contribution to hang on the trees. (every week if you would like to!)

We hope to cover the trees with mittens (scarves, gloves, hats, toques, even warm socks) as we have done in the past.

The items will be distributed to children and adults in less-fortunate areas of our community and inner-city Hamilton  and maybe …..just maybe … we can warm their hearts a little at the same time.

Please join us before or between services in Bronte Hall, throughout November, to be part of this warm and fuzzy Outreach program.
