For the past few years a benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous has been making 100 percent, all-wool mittens that she sells to benefit the Crosslake Food Shelf.
She is very much in need of donations of 100 percent wool sweaters and vests so she has mittens to sell for the summer flea markets and craft sales. Donations of 1/2- to 1-inch buttons are also needed.
Materials may be dropped off at Lakes Area Gallery and Frame Shoppe, Crosslake Hair Company, Frandsen Bank Crosslake, the Crosslake Welcome Center or the Crosslake Food Shelf during normal hours.
Mittens may be purchased year-round at Lakes Area Gallery and Frame Shoppe.
For more information or for a special pick up, call Nancy Rudberg at 218-692-2309.
