DETROIT -- The Red Wings are working to prevent frostbite and keep residents warm in the 12th annual Motor City Mitten Madness clothing collection. Together with the Detroit Receiving Hospital Burn Center, the Wings are asking fans attending the next three home games to join their efforts to assist some of the less fortunate in the area.
The collection will take place at Red Wings' games on December 12, 20 and 22 at Joe Louis Arena. Fans attending these home games against Ottawa, Columbus and Minnesota are asked to bring clean, new and used blankets, gloves, hats, scarves and other winter wear items to collection bins at Joe Louis Arena. The clothing will be distributed to Detroit area shelters and warming centers to aid in the prevention of frostbite among the homeless.
Each donor at the three games will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win Red Wings' merchandise autographed by Chris Osgood. One winner will be announced at each game and must be present to win.
