Area agencies, businesses accepting donations

The Subway restaurant at Monument Square is holding its second Tree of Warmth to collect blankets, hats, coats, gloves and scarves to be donated to the Salvation Army. Customer Rich Seward, left, holds a donated blanket while Subway owners Amy Confer and Lloyd Cavanaugh show the tree covered in donated items. The restaurant is also working in conjunction with Ed’s Trains, South Hills School of Business and Technology and the Juniata River Valley Chamber of Commerce with the Festival of Ice Food Drive. Donations of canned food items will be used to create holiday train displays at 3 W. Monument Square and at South Hills. Food will be given to Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. Donations are accepted during the Festival of Ice and throughout the holiday season.
