October 27, 2017 Holiday Opportunities

When Janet Tupy admired “upcycled” mittens at a gift shop – mittens made from old sweaters –the idea of ReMitts was born. “I remembered  reading about a pastor who gave each member of his congregation $100 with the charge to ‘grow’ the money and donate the proceeds,” said Janet. “I thought, what could I do with $100 dollars of seed money? How much could I grow for a good cause?”

The answer is an astounding $366,000 for local food pantries. Made entirely by area volunteers, ReMitts are made from recycled sweaters and soft fleece. You will find ReMitts at the 2020 MOM Holiday Art Fair, taking place virtually this year.  One hundred percent of their sales will be donated to MOM to help prevent homelessness and end hunger.
