The Barnesville Hutton Memorial Library is once again sponsoring "A Mitten Tree" and the collection non-perishable foods for the Blessings in a Backpack and The Haven.

The scarves, hats and mittens will adorn the libraries tree. The purpose is to help others stay warm, which is greatly appreciated. It is a great time of the year to help others in need.

Type of food donations that we are accepting are: Fruit, pudding and apple sauce cups; instant lunch noodle soups; beef stew in a cup; easy macaroni and cheese; chef Boyardee Pasta soups; chicken & tuna salad with crackers; Slim Jim and cheese packs; cheese/peanut butter crackers, bag of chips; instant oatmeal, variety cereal boxes, small box of raisins, and granola bars.

Items will be collected until Dec. 15. If you have any questions, call the Library at 740-425-1651.
