While more than 100 pieces have already been donated, organizers tell WHAV the submission deadline has been extended and staff continues to accept donations through this Saturday, Nov. 17.

Items may be dropped off for consideration at 240 Water St., on Friday, Nov. 16 or Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
