Paying it forward in mittens!

by The Delaware County Division

Nancy Braha, Delaware County Program Director, had an idea about a great way to get our children involved with helping other children in the area. This year, the Delaware County Division would have a Mitten Tree during the holiday season. Members of our parent group joined the project; a connection was made with a local charity, notices went home to families inviting them to participate, the tree went up, the lights were turned on and we were on our way. It didn’t take too long for our tree to be filled with mittens, gloves, and hats donated by our staff and families. Today is the day our helpers packed all of the donations, which are now on their way to City Team in Chester, PA. As one of our parents said, “We wanted our children to have the opportunity to give to other children as they have been given to by others.”
