Be Powerful! Give Warmth!
Your donation dollar is powerful and makes a big impact when you give warmth through MIttens for Detroit.
Working with our Michigan-based product partner, Broner Hat & Glove, we are able to turn your donation of at least $35 into 5 pairs of new, warm mittens and gloves that would retail for $20 and more. The are not flimsy "one size fits all" gloves. They are gloves that will last and will make a difference in the daily lives of the people who receive them.
We are a small nonprofit, with a huge impact - 168,000 pairs collected and distributed in the first 6 years of operation. How does Mittens for Detroit work? We are a nonprofit that collects, purchases and distributes new mittens and gloves to children and adults in need in Detroit and other underserved communities. 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. Last year 63,000 new pairs were donated.
Mittens for Detroit operates under the fiscal sponsorship of the Kids Like Us!, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Donations are tax-deductible, and will process through Kids Like Us!
