Forest Preserves of Winnebago County Sponsors Hat and Mitten Collection

We nurture trees all year long, but for the holidays we are sponsoring a mitten tree!

Forest Preserves of Winnebago County invites the community to donate new mittens, gloves and hats at its Headquarters administration building. Items collected will be donated to families served at MELD’s Trinity House Homeless Shelter. Trinity House is a non-profit which provides shelter and support services for young parents and their children. Hats and gloves are primarily needed for women and children. Please bring donated items to our mitten tree at 5500 Northrock Drive, Rockford, IL 61103 on Mondays through Fridays between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. Mitten tree collection will wrap up on December 21, 2017. Call 815-877-6100 with questions.
