To the editor:
Thank you to all the library patrons who so generously donated hats, mittens, gloves and scarves for the mitten trees the library had set up before the holidays. The donations filled a huge bag and the contents will be distributed to area families in need through Hallmark Health. The items will also be brought to shelter families including those serviced by Housing Families Inc.
Thanks you to the staff at the Melrose Public Library for this yearly tradition that benefits so many families!
—Karen Andrews, community outreach specialist, Hallmark Health System, Inc., Lebanon Street, Melrose
