Collection boxes will be located around the McNichols, Corktown and Riverfront Campuses. Mittens for Detroit also accepts monetary donations online.

On the McNichols Campus, boxes will be located at the Fitness Center, library and at The Loft dining area in the lower level. Boxes for collection will also be on the first floor of the Fisher Building on the McNichols Campus as well as on the Law and Dental campuses and in various offices areas.

Thousands of adults and children in Detroit face cold temperatures without a pair of gloves to protect their hands. Learn more about the organization trying to change this by visiting Mittens for Detroit’s website.
