Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center Kicks-Off Annual Mitten Tree Program

Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center Kicks-Off Annual Mitten Tree Program

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center has launched their annual Mitten Tree Program. 

Ongoing through Saturday, Dec. 31, 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 the following organizations: 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. If you’d like to donate, the Visitor Center asks that you hang new or handmade items upon the tree. 

Visitor Center hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.discoversaratoga.org/saratoga-springs-visitor-center.
