South Bend Farmer's Market collecting winter attire for charity

SOUTH BEND, Ind.-The South Bend Farmer’s Market is known for their fresh food and unique vendors. But, it’s also a place where you can give back this holiday season.

The market is collecting gloves, hats, mittens and scarves to decorate their “Being Thankful” tree until December 16th. After the tree is taken down, all of the items will be donated to local charities.

“We’ve been a part of the community for basically 75 to 80 years and we just wanted to reach out and keep helping out,” said Michael Hiatt, Co-Vice President of the South Bend Farmer’s Market.

You can bring in donations to the main office or to any vendor.

The market is also partnering up with the Marines to host a “Toys for Tots Drive.” You can drop off brand new and unwrapped toys to the market until December 16th.

Their hours are 7 A.M. to 3 P.M. every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
