Mitten tree is ready for donations!

Pic-MittenTree-2014The Health Sciences Library has put up our annual mitten tree on the first floor of the library. Everyone is welcome to contribute mittens, hats, scarves or other items to the tree. Simply bring in items and hang them on the tree. After the holidays, library staff will take all of the items on the tree and donate them to the nearby Comitis Crisis Center.

Comitis is a non-profit agency underneath the umbrella of Mile High Behavioral Healthcare. The shelter serves runaway/homeless children, homeless families, and homeless Veterans—with a particular focus on homeless female Veterans and their families. Comitis is also in need of toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, shampoo, etc.), towels and twin sheets. Any of these items that are left under the tree will also be donated.

The tree will be up through January 5, 2014. For more information or questions, contact Library Administration.
