Mitten basket at Town Hall

With the expectation of a cold and long winter ahead of us, the Town Hall will start collecting mittens, scarves, hats and gloves this year for residents of Newport County.

The Jamestown community is welcome to start making donations to the mitten basket on Monday, Nov. 14.

We request that brand new or handmade items be unwrapped and placed in the basket at the Town Hall, 93 Narragansett Ave., no later than Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 4 p.m. for holiday delivery.

Donations will benefit the Newport County Women’s Resource Center.

Please stop by the Town Hall to add to the mitten basket and to continue to show the island’s generous support during this holiday season.

Last year’s donations were extremely generous and it is truly wonderful to see the community’s warmth and kindness.

Thank-you to everyone for making the past years such a great success!

Kim Turcone, deputy town clerk
