The Mitten Tree 2015 | Campaign Results

Posted: December 9, 2015



In November, WESTconsin Credit Union offices collected winter apparel and accessories on behalf of the company’s annual The Mitten Tree campaign.


Overall, 2,361 winter apparel and accessory items were gathered in support of this cause. The credit union saw an increase in monetary donations which allowed for the purchase of larger and/or more expensive items such as coats, boots, socks and blankets. Local distribution was made possible thanks to the following community partners:
  • Amery Office | Amery School District, Operation Christmas 
  • Baldwin Office | St. Croix Valley Family Resource Center 
  • Barron Office | Gift from the Heart Program 
  • Chippewa Falls Office | Spirit of Christmas 
  • Eau Claire Office | Bolton Refuge House 
  • Ellsworth Office | Basics for Local Kids 
  • Hudson Office | Operation Help 
  • Menomonie-Downtown Office | Knapp Elementary 
  • Menomonie-East Office | River Heights Elementary, WestCAP 
  • Menomonie-North Office | Downsville Elementary 
  • New Richmond Office | Grace Place, Head Start, Five Loaves Food Shelf 
  • Prescott Office | Prescott Food Shelf 
  • River Falls Office | St. Bridget Church 
  • Spring Valley Office | Spring Valley Food Shelf
    Fundraising was promoted internally to credit union employees and externally to the general public. WESTconsin extends a sincere note of thanks to everyone who participated in giving and distributing donations. The need for basic life necessities continues to be high in our region. Those interested in offering additional help should contact their local charities and nonprofit organizations.
