When winter hits Detroit, it hits hard – especially for those who are homeless or in transition. We all know how much colder the day and night can seem without gloves. For thousands of children and adults in Detroit, a single pair of gloves to protect their hands is a luxury that they cannot afford.

You can help change that. Your donation will help us reach our goal of providing more than 30,000 pairs of new mittens and gloves to those who need them next winter. Donate today to help Mittens for Detroit warm hearts, two hands at a time.

Because of people like you, Mittens for Detroit has worked with a network of about 100 partners to distribute more than one-quarter million pairs to people in Detroit, Hamtramck, Highland Park, Dearborn, and Pontiac. Such a small thing as a pair of mittens or gloves can make a big difference. YOU can be part of the solution with your gift of warmth.

YOU make this all possible. Monetary donations are tax deductible and allow us to purchase new mittens and gloves when the Community Collection does not fulfill the needs of the agencies, schools, shelters, veterans’ groups, and other in our Distribution Network.
