Throughout Canada and the United States, Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) relief sales bring together food, fun and items from quilts to puzzles in all raising more than $5.3 million each year for MCC’s worldwide relief, development and peace work.

There are 30 relief sales in the United States and 14 in Canada, with an estimated 20,000 volunteers coming together to make auctions, food booths, entertainment and other activities possible. Sales include auctions of quilts, furniture and other items and activities for children. Listen to local music or dig into delicious Mennonite specialties like farmer sausage in Manitoba, vereniki in Kansas or strawberry pie in Pennsylvania. Some sales have fundraising runs, bicycle rides or other sporting events.

Make a difference by bidding in an auction or buying a slice of pie. Or explore how you could donate an item for auction, help prepare and serve food or give your time on the day of a sale.
