Your donation of $25 can help warm the hands of four children and adults in Detroit this winter with a pair of new mittens and gloves.
Mittens for Detroit is a charity with the sole purpose to collect, purchase and distribute new mittens and gloves to children and adults in need in Detroit. We do this with the help of nearly 100 partner charities, organizations, agencies, and schools, who distribute the thousands of pairs donated each year. This season's goal is 55,000 pairs.
Mittens for Detroit operates under the fiscal sponsorship of the North Woodward Community Foundation.
Mittens for Detroit was founded in 2010 by actress Erin Cummings (Astronaut Wives Club, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, upcoming ABC miniseries Madoff) when she lived in Metro Detroit while working on Detroit 1-8-7. In its first five years, MFD collected and purchased more than 103,000 new pairs of mittens and gloves, distributing them to close to 100 partner agencies, including Alternative for Girls, The Children’s Center of Wayne County, COTS, Covenant House of Michigan, Detroit Public Schools, Capuchin Soup Kitchen, and the Michigan Veterans Foundation. A partial listing of charity partners can be found at MittensForDetroit.org/Charities.
Your donation dollar goes far. Working with our product partner Michigan's Broner Hat & Glove, we are able to leverage your donation to go much farther than your purchasing dollar can. For instance, a $25 donation can purchase 4 pairs of $15 mittens or gloves. Your generosity makes a difference.
Thank you for your generosity!
