Wanting to help keep children warm during the winter season, Piedmont Credit Union in South Boston recently donated over 200 items to Halifax County Social Services to distribute to children in need.

Branch Manager Deborah Sizemore said the South Boston branch had set up a “mitten tree” which was decorated with mittens, hats and scarves, and it reached out to members who donated similar items.

Sylvia Lovelace and Carolyn Stephens with social services recently picked up the items.

“Piedmont Credit Union would like to thank all of their members who made the mitten tree a success,” Sizemore concluded.
