With below normal temperatures, children are having a hard time protecting themselves from the bitter cold. Hundreds of Milwaukee Public School (MPS) students do not have winter gloves and hats to keep them warm while walking to school or waiting for the bus. That's why MPS is again partnering with TCF National Bank (TCF Bank) for a mitten collection now through January 19.
You can make a difference by donating new or homemade hats, gloves, mittens and scarves to one of the below locations:
MPS Central Services, 5225 W. Vliet St, Milwaukee ( M-F 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
TCF Bank Branches
12850 W. Bluemound Rd., Elm Grove
4110 N. 76th St.
2100 W. Good Hope Rd., Glendale
7932 N. 76th St.
4375 S. 76th St., Greenfield
8955 S. Howell Ave., Oak Creek
110 W. Holt Ave.
4201 N. Oakland Ave., Shorewood
307 N. 76th St., Wauwatosa
1441 Miller Park Way, West Milwaukee
Since 2015, organizers say they have provided thousands of students with warm winter clothing. This is an easy way to help keep kids safe this season.
