This November, MCRHC organized our first-ever Hat and Mitten Drive to benefit Madison County children and adults in need of warm hats and mittens/gloves this winter.

A BIG thank you to Cornell Cooperative Extension of Madison County, AmeriCU Credit Union in Cazenovia and public libraries in Morrisville, New Woodstock and DeRuyter for allowing us to set-up bins at their locations.

Overall, we received 179 hats and 103 pairs of mittens/gloves! We are so appreciative to all of those who donated brand new hats and mittens- many handmade by local residents.

This month we dropped of donations received from our Hat and Mitten Drive to the following organizations:

  • CazCares
  • DeRuyter Central Schools
  • DeRuyter Community Closet
  • Community Action Partnership of Madison County: Diaper Pantry and Code Blue Closet
  • The Opportunity Shop: Angel Christmas
  • Morrisville Friendship Inn
  • Morrisville Area Community Christmas Project
  • Madison County Office for the Aging
  • Clear Path for Veterans

We look forward to next year's Hat and Mitten Drive!
