Mitten Tree enjoys bumper crop!

TCF Mitten Tree DonationThank you to all of the Milwaukee businesses and individuals who donated mittens, gloves, caps and scarves to the MPS Mitten Tree! More than 3,000 items were collected this winter, allowing thousands of students to keep warm. Thanks to these generous donations, our students are able to travel to and from school safely and enjoy recess and outdoor time on playgrounds across the city. On behalf of our students, the Department of Business, Community & Family Partnerships wishes to thank everyone for so many warm items, including many beautiful handmade pieces! Our children are enjoying their new winter gear.

Special thanks go to the following community partners:

TCF Bank
GE Healthcare
BMO Harris Bradley Center
JPMorgan Chase
Wisconsin Women's Business Initiative (WWBIC)

We are grateful to have the support of the community and look forward to seeing your donations during the next MPS Mitten Tree Drive!
