MPS mitten drive runs through January 11

Waiting at bus stops and walking to school can be cold during Wisconsin winters, so MPS is working to keep students warm through its annual mitten tree drive. New mittens, gloves, caps, scarves, and socks, along with long underwear, leggings, and thermal wear, will be collected through January 11. Warm winter clothing can be dropped off at MPS Central Services or select TCF bank locations listed below.

MPS Mitten Tree 2018Handmade and purchased items are welcome. Mittens and other winter items are needed for boys and girls of all grade levels, from three-year-olds through teens.

Last year, thanks to our generous partners and community donors, more than 3,000 items were collected that kept students warm all winter long. Help us break last year’s record and donate soon!
