DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings are teaming up with actress Erin Cummings to collect mittens and gloves for her Mittens for Detroit charity at their home game during the game on January 21 when the Wings host the Columbus Blue Jackets at 7:00 p.m.

Fans are encouraged to bring new mittens and gloves to Saturday’s game. Volunteers from Mittens for Detroit will be on hand at each entrance of Joe Louis Arena to collect mittens and gloves along with monetary donations, which will be used to purchase additional mittens and gloves.

“We are so excited to partner with the Detroit Red Wings,” Cummings said. “The Ilitch’s and the entire Red Wings organization have given so much to the City of Detroit and we feel fortunate to be working with such a generous organization. We truly hope Wings fans will help us and bring a pair of gloves to the game which will be provided to a Detroiter in need this winter.”

Fans who donate a new pair of mittens/gloves or make a monetary donation will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win an autographed, game-used Johan Franzen stick on Saturday. Fans must be present to win.
