Hundreds of MPS students now have mittens, hats thanks to 'Mitten Tree Drive'
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Hundreds of Milwaukee Public School students now have new winter weather accessories.
All of the gloves, mittens, and hats were donated through TCF Bank's "Mitten Tree Drive."
MPS says some kids don't have these items and it can make the school day difficult if they're not prepared.
"With giving items for winter apparel, it allows students to come in comfortably and ready for their academic day," said Sophia Smith, a Volunteer Services Associate with MPS.
MPS and TCF Bank have teamed up for the Mitten Tree Drive for the past 10 years.
