KATONAH, N.Y. -- Katonah Elementary School students showcased their generosity through a tremendously successful Mitten Tree collection and holiday gift drive in December.

Families donated 131 pairs of gloves, 44 pairs of mittens, 65 hats and five scarves.

“The proceeds from the Mitten Tree were shipped to Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota,” said Assistant Principal Terrance Costin. “It is one of the poorest communities in the country.”

The school also held a successful holiday gift drive. Volunteers helped wrap the hundreds of presents that were donated and the gifts were distributed to families in the community.

“December’s word of the month was ‘generosity,’ so it was especially fitting,” said Costin.
