During the Holiday Season, PVMS has been having a HUGS Collection ( Hats, Undies, Gloves and Socks) of new items for many years for the Jefferson Avenue Shelter in Springfield, which served families in transition from unsafe environments. In the beginning of 2009, the Shelter changed its mission to house young mothers (ages 15 to 20 years) with children between the ages of 5 months and 5 years. This year our collection will encompass both the young children and the mothers. We will still collect the same items, but they will be specific to these age ranges. Our collection is always greatly appreciated by the shelter. While underwear purchases may not be appropriate for the mothers, hats, socks and gloves or mittens will be. We hope you will consider participating.
