Mitten Tree at UTM Library

Donate your winter accessories to support women and their families through the UTM Library Mitten Tree! Instead of decorating a tree with ornaments, a mitten tree is covered with winter accessories such as scarves, hats, and mittens or gloves.

Mitten Tree: Nov 14, 2022 – Jan 10, 2023. Donate your winter accessories at the Library Info & Loans Desk. Donations to Embrave: Agency to End Violence. Graphic includes a holiday tree decorated with winter accessories against a snowy background.

At the end of the holiday season, the Library will send all donations to Embrave, an organization supporting women and families who are leaving abusive situations. Embrave is inclusive of all women facing violence—including two-spirit, trans and non-binary people—and their children; supports are provided to survivors with or without children.

Please join us in supporting our community this holiday season!
