The Old Forge Fire Department Auxiliary is sponsoring a Warming Tree for donations of new or handmade hats, mittens, gloves, socks or scarves for those in need.

Knitted articles are especially needed for older boys, said Jane Tormey, auxiliary president. Donations can be dropped off at the fire hall entranceway through December 14.

The knitted articles will be distributed by the Kiwanis Club of the Central Adirondacks through its “Toys for Tots” program.

To submit the name of someone in need of these items, contact Jane Tormey at (315) 369- 6266 or 369-8382, or any auxiliary member.

Please include the ages of the individuals and sizes needed.
