Founded in 2010, Mittens for Detroit is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that collects, purchases, and distributes new, warm mittens and gloves for children, teens, and adults in need in Detroit, Michigan and other underserved cities. Currently, our Distribution Partners are located in Detroit, Hamtramck, Highland Park, Dearborn, and Pontiac. From October 1st through January 10th each year, pairs are donated in public and private collections. These are then sorted, counted, and packed by amazing volunteers in The Big Sort. Our Distribution Partner network of art agencies, organizations, schools, shelters, senior centers, veterans organizations, and the like then pick up their boxes of pairs for distribution to their guests, families, students, residents, and so on. More than one-quarter million pairs of new mittens and gloves have been collected and distributed since 2010.
