Mitten drive has successful season

Once again the generosity of the residents of Jamestown was overwhelming. The annual mitten drive was a huge success. This year we collected 279 items and in separating the combinations for counting purposes the total came to an amazing 310 items.

A big thank you goes to the Secret Garden for joining the Town Hall in the collection of the donations with their “Homespun Christmas” theme. The donations were delivered to a tremendously thankful Women’s Resource Center of Newport and Bristol Counties Staff on Dec. 21.

As a community, we can be very proud of our residents and their concern for others not only during the cold season, but all through the year. Best wishes to all for a happy and healthy New Year.
