BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE - The Adirondack Museum will accept donations of food and winter clothing for a full month this fall, in collaboration with Hamilton County Community Action.
From Sept. 20 through Oct. 18, donations of dried or canned foods, winter outerwear to include coats, hats, scarves, mittens, or boots for adults and children, as well as warm blankets, comforters, or quilts will be collected in the museum's Visitor Center.
The Visitor Center is open from 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. daily.
During the annual Adirondack Fabric and Fiber Arts Festival on Sept. 25, a special knit-in, "Warm Up America!" will create afghans that will also be donated to Hamilton County Community action. The knit-in will be held in the Visitor Center from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Hamilton County Community Action, located on Main Street in Indian Lake provides programs and services for income-eligible senior, disabled, or in need residents. In 2009, the Adirondack Museum's Harvest Festival food drive contributed more than ninety pounds of dried and canned food to their pantry shelves.
