2016 Mittens & More - Thank you

Many thanks from the 2016 Mittens and More Community Service Drive!!

For the past years you have generously donated your time, talents, and financial support to provide many of the Milwaukee, Waukesha, and Racine area’s needy families with warm mittens, hats, and scarves for the coming winter.

This year we collected 8,285 items for 43 organizations. Numerous volunteers assisted in many ways including the individuals, knitting and sewing groups, libraries, churches, and high school clubs who donated.

This campaign wouldn’t be successful without you. From all of us at Milwaukee PBS, thank you for continuing to support Mittens and More Community Service Drive and our station. Your contributions not only allow us to provide programming that educates, entertains, and inspires, but also helps keep our community warm.

Distribution boxes generously provided by the Home Depot.
