FARGO — Dozens of employees from Tech Mahindra are doing their part to help the less fortunate stay warm this winter by donating gear for cold weather.

Employees donated 82 pairs of mittens that each come with a pair of socks to Churches United in Moorhead, as well as an additional 65 pairs of socks.

The two teams met Thursday, Nov. 14, at Tech Mahindra to pass along the items and chat about why donations like these are crucial.

Jessica Sell, a team lead at Tech Mahindra, said the hands-on project started with a fleece drive two weeks ago to collect old sweaters and fabric for the mittens.

Sell also said they just finished a food donation drive around Halloween, and will be setting up a First Link Giving Tree starting Monday.
