MPTV’s Mittens & More
Help Keep Hands and Hearts Warm This Winter!
Milwaukee Public Televison’s 6th annual “Mittens & More” Community Service Drive is scheduled for October 7 - October 25, 2013. Please donate NEW mittens, gloves, hats and scarves of all sizes to this charitable drive. The greatest need is for children’s sizes.
We hope knitting and sewing groups, schools, religious groups; service organizations, scouts, 4-H clubs and others will join together and knit, purchase and donate these winter items. These items are so necessary for the comfort and health of those children and families who do not have the resources to buy or make them for themselves.
Since the need for these items has always exceeded the supply, we are frequently asked why we don’t request used mittens, gloves, hats and scarves as well. Unfortunately, we do not have a service that will those items so that they will be in “almost new” condition for recipients. Gloves and mittens, especially, get a lot of wear and tear. It seemed to make sense to ask for NEW items to assure quality.
Whatever you can do to help will be appreciated. If everyone who could gave just one pair of mittens, the need would be met. Thank you for whatever you can do......whatever you can give.
