Mitten Mission – Community Outreach Programming

Mitten Mission volunteers take used wool sweaters and turn them into lined, warm woolen mittens for the homeless. Our outreach mission graciously accepts sweaters that are at least 60% wool. Donations may be made in the marked donation bin to the right of the church’s back entrance, off the parking lot. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the office at or call 419.874.5704.

Homelessness in the Toledo Area
“They exist in every community. We pass by them without noticing. They may ask for money, with or without a sign that says “please help.” And like all societal problems, our reactions are a mix of pity, irritation, embarrassment, sympathy, and bewilderment. Homeless people. In the most prosperous country in the world, our giving, vibrant community has homeless people on our streets.”
