For thousands of children and adults in Detroit, a single pair of gloves to protect their hands is a luxury they cannot afford. Shelters often distribute socks as makeshift mittens. Imagine glovelessly holding your toddler, as you wait for the bus. Think about the children who cannot play in the snow and fully enjoy winter because they do not have mittens to keep their little hands warm and dry. Picture yourself sheltered in a doorway of a building, with your hands bundled into your coat sleeves, trying to avoid frostbite. These cold hands belong to school children, grandparents, veterans, moms, dads - people who are homeless or in transition. Imagine yourself in that reality.
You can help change the reality to one of warmth. You can make a great difference in the life and health of others with your donation. Your gift will help us reach our goal of providing 53,000 pairs of new gloves to those who need them next winter. Donate now and help Mittens for Detroit warm hearts, two hands at a time.
