It was four years ago when Enrichment Federal Credit Union in Kingston began collecting gloves, scarves and hats for needy Roane County children.
“It keeps getting bigger and bigger,” said manager Becky Woody.
The credit union collected more than 1,200 items in 2011. And collections are well under way this year.
Late last week, items piled along multiple tables ranged from simple mittens to handcrafted items.
Enrichment staff members will add to the collection by purchasing additional wintery items.
