Welcome to Winter

When the first snows begin to fall in November, area teachers often observe in their classrooms an urgent need for basic cold weather gear. UWRC partners with community donors to provide hats and gloves or mittens to the children of Rutland County by collaborating with area schools to identify and distribute according to need.

For 2020-21 Welcome to Winter provided 1000 hats and 1000 pairs of gloves to Rutland County elementary school students.
