Throughout November and December, families are invited to contribute to the Kenton County Public Library’s Mitten Tree. Stop by the Durr Branch (1992 Walton-Nicholson Road, Independence) to help decorate the tree with handmade (or new) scarves, hats, mittens or gloves.
The items will be donated to Welcome House and Scarf It Up! of Northern Kentucky. The Welcome House of Northern Kentucky provides services and support to help end homelessness in Northern Kentucky. Scarf It Up! gathers and distributes handmade scarves for those in need, including youth, the homeless and the elderly, and is a program of Shoulder to Shoulder, a non-profit organization that seeks to aid those living in poverty.
