BATAVIA, N.Y. — The Genesee County 4-H Teen Club is giving back this holiday season by collecting “Mitten Tree” donations and donating filled holiday stockings to deployed military members.
At their November Club meeting, teen club members donated holiday stockings for deployed military members. The stockings were put together by teen club members using items that they purchased and donated. Members included fun and useful items such as snacks, gum, candy, and puzzles. The holiday stockings will be mailed to deployed military members to enjoy this holiday season.
Teen Club members also set up a “Mitten Tree” at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Office to collect donations of hats, gloves, mittens and scarves. Donated items will be displayed on the Mitten Tree until December 14th and then will be donated to local families in need. Donations will be accepted at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Office, 420 East Main Street, Batavia, NY 14020. Office hours are 8:30am – 5:00pm, Monday – Friday.
