Wings to collect winter gear for homeless shelters Saturday with Motor City Mitten Madness

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings and the DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital are asking fans to bring new or gently-used cold weather wear to the home game on Saturday, Nov. 23, as part of the 20th annual Motor City Mitten Madness (MCMM) program.

Volunteers from the DRH Burn Center will collect adult and children’s winter clothing wear and monetary donations at each of the four entrances of Joe Louis Arena to make this holiday season a little warmer for Detroit homeless shelters.

For every item donated or a monetary donation, fans will have the opportunity to win a Johan Franzen autographed puck and photo. One winner will be announced at the game and fans must be present to win.

Fans are encouraged to bring clean, new or gently-used winter clothing articles such as gloves, mittens, scarves, socks, hats and blankets. All items collected on Nov. 23 will be distributed to Detroit area shelters to help prevent frostbite among the homeless, who are especially at risk of this preventable injury.

WHO: Detroit Red Wings and DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital Burn Center

WHAT: 20th Annual Motor City Mitten Madness

WHERE: Each of the Four Entrances to Joe Louis Arena

WHEN: Saturday, Nov. 23, vs. Ottawa at 7:00 p.m.
