Thank you to all of the generous people who donated to our Mittens and More campaign.

We Surpassed Our Goal!

Great News! Milwaukee PBS’ 11th Annual “Mittens & More” Community Service Drive was a huge success and will help keep hundreds of people warm this winter.

Our goal for 2018 was 10,000 items and we are so happy to announce that we surpassed that goal!

A vast majority of the mittens, hats, scarves, and gloves in all sizes were beautifully hand knit, crocheted and sewn. Purchased items were also accepted.

We are grateful for our viewers and community members that participated either individually or as one of the many talented knitting, sewing, and service groups!
