Mittens & More: MPTV'S Fourth Annual Community Service Project

The greatest need is for children's items, especially mittens and gloves. We encourage knitting groups, schools, service organizations, scouts, 4-H clubs and individuals to join together and knit, purchase and donate NEW mittens, gloves, hats and scarves to help meet the needs of families this winter.

Mittens & More is a community service project of MPTV and its partners to help children and families who do not have the resources to provide these items for themselves.

In 2010, MPTV received 3,663 donations and distributed them free of charge to 35 agencies and schools. Teachers and service providers were able to give mittens and other warm winter accessories to children and families who didn't have them.
