The Empire-Tribune's annual Becky's Wish campaign is coming to a close. Today is the last chance to donate gloves and mittens to the campaign before the items are taken to a non-profit organization for disbursement.
For the past three years, the E-T has partnered with local businesses to collect new mittens and gloves to keep Erath County residents warm during the cold months of winter.
A collection box is located inside the E-T office at 590 E. South Loop, as well as Gifford's TV and Electronics, TexasBank, InterBank and First Baptist Church.
Last year, the E-T collected more than 170 pairs of gloves and mittens as well as coats, scarves and knit caps.
