GFWC distributes warm clothing

The General Federation of Womens Club-Big Rapids was overwhelmed with the response from the community as well as its members to the 2017 Mitten Tree. With the support of Chemical Bank to house the tree and Patterson’s Flowers to loan the tree, 215 items — mittens, gloves, scarves, hats and miscellaneous other items — were delivered to Project Starburst, Salvation Army and WISE. GFWC members hope these items will help the families who utilize these agencies be able to keep their children warm during the winter season.
