Mittens, hats, and scarves for The Mitten Tree


The Health Sciences Library has put up our annual Mitten Tree on the first floor main entrance of the library. All donations will benefit The Comitis Crisis Center.

What can I donate? We invite everyone to donate new or newly-made mittens, hats, and scarves. We also welcome towels, twin sheets, and toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, shampoo, etc.)

How do I donate? Simply bring in the items and hang them on the tree at the library.

Until when can I donate? The tree will be up through January 8, 2016.

Who will my donation benefit? After the holidays, library staff will take all of the items 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.
