AUGUSTA — Central Maine Power Co., a subsidiary of Iberdrola USA, is launching its 12th annual Community Mitten Drive, according to a news release from CMP.

“We’re accepting donations of new, store-bought or handmade mittens, hats and scarves to help keep Maine kids warm this winter,” CMP spokeswoman Gail Rice said in the release. “We’ll have collection boxes at all Reny’s retail stores and Androscoggin Bank branches.” A list of locations is posted on CMP’s website at

CMP corresponds with schools throughout its service area to gauge the need for children’s mittens, hats and scarves. Once received, the items will be distributed to where they’re needed most. The drive will continue through February 2016.
