‘Mitten Tree’ donation program underway
As part of its annual “Mitten Tree” appeal, the Hudson River Maritime Museum is accepting donations of new winter weather accessories to be distributed to local children in need.
Items such as warm mittens, gloves, hats and scarves will be accepted. The museum is also seeking donations of new or slightly used fishing poles and reels to benefit residents at a local youth organization. All equipment must be in good working order.
The museum will be accepting both kinds of donations at the museum gift shop from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays until Dec. 18 and at the administrative offices from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays through Dec. 23. The donations will be displayed in the museum’s East Gallery for the “Fishing Tree” and gift shop for the “Mitten Tree”
The museum will deliver the donations by midJanuary 2017.
