The Big Bundle Up

The Big Bundle Up

With the spirit of the holiday season upon us, donating items is the perfect way to give back to Wisconsin families in need.The Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s first-ever mitten collection program last winter was an enormous success, so we're doing it again this year!

From Dec. 3, 2012 – Jan. 4, 2013, residents and travelers are invited to donate new or gently used mittens, hats, scarves, earmuffs, hats, coats, sweaters, jackets, snow pants, and other warm clothing items to help Wisconsin residents stay warm this season. All collected items will be donated to local charities. Thanks to the Green Bay Packers, Packers fans can also donate warm clothing items at Lambeau Field prior to the start of the Dec. 9, 2012 Packers/Lions game.

Throughout the five-week collection time, donors can drop off warm clothing items at any of the following drop-off locations. If you’re not sure about hours, please call ahead to double check!
