SARATOGA SPRINGS —The annual Mitten Tree Program is up and running and will continue through Jan. 3, the Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center announced during its Nov. 28 program launch.

Members of the local community are invited to contribute warm winter wear to the Visitor Center Mitten Tree - located at 297 Broadway in Saratoga Springs. All donations will benefit CAPTAIN Community Human Services, Franklin Community Center, and Shelters of Saratoga.

Instead of ornaments or lights, the tree is decorated with warm winter items such as hats, scarves, gloves, and of course, mittens. Those wishing to donate are encouraged to hang new or handmade items upon the tree. 

The Visitor Center is open 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Tuesdays–Saturdays.  Special hours will apply during the week of Christmas. For more information, visit www.discoversaratoga.org/saratoga-springs-visitor-center.
