Maritime Museum Seeking Winter Wear Donations for Mitten Tree Drive
Gloves, hats, socks, and more will benefit local human services orgs
KINGSTON, N.Y. – Hudson River Maritime Museum is collecting winter accessories as part of the museum’s annual Mitten Tree drive. For over a decade, the museum has collected new or gently used winter wear. The items are hung on a 10’ wooden tree structure built at the museum’s Wooden Boat School. When the tree is full, donations are brought to local adult and children’s services organizations.
Donations sought include gloves, mittens, hats, scarves, socks, hand warmers, and umbrellas. Items can be for all ages and can be brought to the museum store which is located at 50 Rondout Landing in Kingston. The store is open Thursday-Sunday, 11:00am-5:00pm and a designated box will be available on the front porch to accept donations when the store is closed.
