The NNS Mitten Tree

Early December

The Mitten Tree is a holiday tradition that introduces the children to the concept of giving to the less fortunate children in our area. Because many families have their own holiday giving traditions, The Mitten Tree is not unduly emphasized and participation is entirely optional. For interested families, a short description follows

For two weeks before the holiday break, children may bring NEW hats, gloves, scarves and mittens to school. A teacher escorts the child who is making the donation to a small tree located in their classroom. The child chooses a place on the tree to hang the item. After two weeks, the class packs the items into a box which they wrap up and address. The box is delivered to The Family and Children Services of Central New Jersey or to another local agency for distribution to needy children
