GFWC mitten tree ready for donations

With the holidays on the horizon, General Federation of Women’s Clubs — Big Rapids is once again sponsoring a mitten tree to collect mittens, gloves, hats, scarves and any item that would help keep a child warm during the winter months. Located in the lobby of Chemical Bank in downtown Big Rapids, the mitten tree and a collection box will be available until Dec. 11. Donations from the community are welcome. All items collected will be distributed to WISE, Project Starburst and the Salvation Army for clients in need.
