Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Sweater Drive
November 16 - December 17, 2020
In the spirit of Fred Rogers' lessons of helping others, Children's Museum of Pittsburgh holds an annual Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Sweater Drive each fall. Since 2000, the museum has collected more than 42, 500 sweaters, distributing them to families in need throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania. This year's Sweater Drive partners include the Presbyterian Churches of the Tri-State Area, The Homeless Children’s Education Fund, Community Human Services and other nonprofit agencies that work with families and children in the region.
making a sweater donation?
Since Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh is temporarily closed, sweater drop-offs will be OUTSIDE the museum's front door. Through December 17, 2020, donors can safely - without human contact - share the feeling of warmth with neighbors in need by dropping off their new or gently-used, adult and child sized sweaters in collection bins located outside of the museum on the ramp leading up to the front door.
requesting a donation?
Children's Museum of Pittsburgh takes pride in our support of nonprofit organizations and schools. Donation requests will only be considered if the request is made by a non-profit group located in Pennsylvania, Ohio or West Virginia. All donation requests will be reviewed within 2 weeks. All donated sweaters collected will be distributed to requesting organizations between December 18 & 21. If you have any questions or would like to request a donation of sweaters from the Museum, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
