Joshua Morrison/Mount Vernon News

Paula and Mike Miller hang over 75 hats, gloves and scarves on a “giving tree” on Mount Vernon Public Square, Wednesday evening. Paula Miller and Tyra Brown organized the donation of items, some handmade. Brown told the News she saw a similar event in another community and thought that with the cold weather there would be people in need here. The winter accessories are available to take as needed. Anything remaining will be removed Sunday.
