Trott &Trott, NDex employees donate more than 360 gloves and mittens to local charity

Trott & Trott PC joined with NDeX Michigan (NDeX) to support Mittens for Detroit during their winter charity initiative.

Mittens for Detroit is a community nonprofit organization that was established with the sole purpose of collecting and distributing new gloves and mittens to those in need--both children and adults--throughout metropolitan Detroit.

Trott and NDeX employees were offered casual time in exchange for contributing funds or a minimum of five new pairs of mittens or gloves during the months of November and December. In total, employees from both companies donated more than 360 pairs of mittens and gloves, and $2,300 to the cause. The companies also matched their employees' donations with a gift of $4,100, bringing the total monetary donation to $6,400.

"Mittens for Detroit is fulfilling a critical need in and around Detroit," said Trott Chairman David A. Trott. "In our cold, long Michigan winters, it is so important to keep those in need warm and we're proud to support such a worthy cause. This was a great way to round out our 2011 corporate giving initiatives, during which our employees exhibited exceptional generosity and a deep commitment to the local community."
