The Motor City Mitten Mission is ALWAYS looking for volunteers.  Especially to volunteers to join our "PLARN FARM" which is our MCMM Team that recycles plastic bags to make Mats and Pillows for the homeless. We also do regular "Outreach" to the homeless living on the streets as well as in shelters.  While doing outreach we go prepared to provide the homeless and needy with a Plarn Mat & Pillow set along with additional items that may include coats, clothing, boots & shoes, hats, gloves, scarves, socks, long-underwear, blankets, personal care items, hand & toe warmers, snacks and bagged lunches. We also have a variety of additional volunteer opportunities to assist at various events. 

Financial Assistance

The Motor City Mitten Mission is a Michigan 501c3 Nonprofit organization.  We are currently a 100% volunteer organization.  Every dollar donated goes directly to support the initiatives of the MCMM.  In addition to providing food and the basic living necessities to our homeless and needy, our goal is ultimately to provide a job that will assist in transitioning individuals into permanent sustainable housing.  This will not be possible unless we have the funds to do so.   In the coming months we will be rolling out various fundraising events as well as a membership and sponsorship program.  Please contact us if you would like to become an Official Sponsor or Member of the Motor City Mitten Mission.
