Volunteer Opportunity:

Calling all MittenMakers!

Mittens for Detroit receives more than 1,000 handmade pairs of new, warm mittens every year, from all over the country. If you knit, crochet, or sew, this is an excellent volunteer opportunity for you - regardless of age. Mittens can be knitted or crocheted. They can also be sewn, using new fleece or upcycled materials such as wool or acrylic sweaters, or wool cloth.

Pairs can be created and mailed to us year-round, and they can be of any size from kids to senior citizens. We ask that the yarn used is easy care and washable. This is a great opportunity for organizations, clubs, scouts, and other teams who want to have some fun with a purpose.
