Not everyone in Frederick has a warm bed, food on the table or a roof over their heads. In 2017, we launched The Mitten Project at Federated Charities to help keep their hands warm. Starting on Frosty Friday (November 24th) until New Year's Day, adult mittens and gloves will be available on our garden fence for anyone who needs a pair. Please take one if you need them...and, if you have an extra pair of gloves, feel free to share them with others. Frederick is a great place to keep warm together. Happy Holidays from Federated Charities!
have a pair? give a pair.
Help others without any reason and give without the expectation of receiving anything in return
-Roy T. Bennett
Our front gate will have adult mittens and gloves on display through New Year's Day. If your hands are cold and you need a pair of gloves, take a pair...if you would like to give a pair away, leave a pair on the fence.
Envisioned as part of our existing compassionate community services like the medical equipment loan closet and Community Table Project, The Mitten Project at Federated Charities is a perfect way for you to give back at the holidays.
Feel free to attach one of our gift tags to your pair of gloves (and if you have hats or scarves to donate, please drop them off inside the building). After the new year, any mittens remaining will be donated to local community organizations.
If you'd like to leave a pair of mittens or gloves, come visit us and hang them on our holiday garland on the garden fence!
We are located in downtown Frederick, MD at 22 South Market Street, Suite 1.
