Volunteer with Mittens for Detroit to lend a hand to as they kick off their 10th Collection Season. You'll be celebrating 10 years of warmth by helping to get thousands of new mittens and gloves onto thousands of hands. Mittens for Detroit collects thousands of pairs of new mittens and gloves every year, then distributes them to children and adults throughout the Detroit metro area, including Hamtramck, Highland Park, and Dearborn. In order to process and gift all the mittens, Mittens for Detroit needs lots volunteers to lend a hand.

Ideally your group should have between 5 - 20 people from your office, community group, sorority, company, school, or other group. Each volunteer must be age 18+ or older.
