A local church is doing what they can to keep area kids warm this winter.
Salem Church in Quincy is once again sponsoring a "Mitten Tree" to collect scarves, hats, gloves and mittens.
Organizers say the donations go to Quincy schools, where the donations are then given out to students who need it.
"What's especially sad is to see a small child in a pair of shoes, no socks, his feet are wet all day because his shoes are wet and there's no socks to keep the feet warm," said Carol Hillebrenner, Caring Ministry of Salem Church.
You can drop off your donations at Salem Church in Quincy. The collection runs until January 8.
