The Second Congregational Church UCC, at 205 Main St. in Norway, requests help in expanding its Mitten Mission.

For more than 50 years, a small group of dedicated members and friends of the church knit mittens, hats and scarves for children in the Oxford Hills school district to use on cold winter days. This year, the group asks the community’s help in expanding this tradition.

New-store-bought, clean-gently-used, and hand-knit mittens, scarves and hats of all sizes are needed and can be dropped off at the church.

During December, the mittens will decorate the Sanctuary-Mable Brown Christmas tree. Then in early January, mittens, hats and scarves will be given to the local elementary schools, preschools, middle school, and high school.

For more information, call the church office at 207-743-2290.
