Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) is a relief, service, and peace agency of the North American Mennonite and Brethren in Christ churches.
We support MCC through prayer and our resources, in efforts such as constructing school kits, collecting blankets, and other relief efforts. The children's Sunday school class raised and collected funds for the tsunami relief effort.
School kits are our most requested item. They are given primarily to refugee and displaced children, helping students and teachers add some normalcy to disrupted lives. Also areas that experienced natural disasters receive them with joy. MCC sends school kits for children in places such as Bosnia, Haiti, Honduras, Iraq, Liberia, Nicaragua, North Korea, Russia, Serbia, and Ukraine and to poorly funded schools in Canada and the United States. In 2008, MCC shipped over 120,000 school kits.
