When kids are done trimming the tree at home, bring them by kidscommons, 309 Washington St., with hats, gloves and scarves to add a little holiday cheer to the Mitten Tree.
Beginning Dec. 6, kidscommons will collect new, cold-weather gear for Lincoln Central Neighborhood Family Center and Orphan Grain Train. Little ones are invited to hang their donations on the tree themselves.
“We put a big tree in the window so that people both outside and inside can watch it fill up,” said Diane Robbins, spokeswoman for kidscommons, the Columbus community children’s museum.
Robbins said that kidscommons will take a dollar off the $6 regular admission for each item donated through Jan. 6, up to $2 per person.
This is the third year for the program. Last year the Mitten Tree brought in more than 100 items.
