My name is Maddie Bozik and I am the president of Maddie’s Mitten March. I started this charity when I was 10 years old I knew I wanted to help people but I didn’t know exactly what I should do. We collect winter coats, gloves, hats, scarves and boots to redistribute those in need. Many people and other groups did things like food drives but I was thinking of something that many people overlooked. So then I came up with Maddie’s Mitten March then it grew into what it is today. The goal is to help as many people as possible to get them winter clothing through donations that we receive.
Charity, High School, and a Bus. Oh My!"
