Donate to the Interior Savings Knittin’ Mitten Tree in Barriere

This is the place for customers and area residents to drop off donations for the Food Bank

The Knitten Mitten Tree at Interior Savings

Interior Savings Credit Union in Barriere looks a lot like Christmas already, the annual Knittin’ Mitten Tree is set up, and there are decorations and boxes all around.

Each year this is the place for customers and area residents to drop off donations for the Barriere and District Food Bank to provide those in need with items they may otherwise have to go without this holiday season. Historically, the tree becomes loaded with knitted gloves, toques, scarves and stockings.   But the Food Bank is always in need of other items, and currently they are in need of:

Toiletries – any day-to-day items such as soap, shampoo, etcetera.

Baby food – there is currently none in their stocks.

Gifts for Christmas hampers – in need of items for teens, both boys and girls (clothing, gift cards, etcetera).

Food – anything non-perishable. Perishables are welcome, but would be best if provided as close to the hamper distribution date as possible.

Pet food – even open bags of pet food can be re-packaged and given out to keep companion animals fed.
