The Mennonite Country Auction & Relief Sale is one of over 47 relief sales held in the United States and Canada. Proceeds from these relief sales support the international relief, developemnt and service ministries of the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). Service is given "In the name of Christ" in the midst of a hurting world as a witness to a compassionate God.
MCC was born in 1920 in response to hunger and related human need brought on by war and revolution in Russia and the Ukraine. Today MCC has about 1000 workers serving in some 53 countries, including the U.S., and sends assistance to 70 countries. MCC's programs include providing material aid, such as wheat, beans, clothing and medical supplies to meet emergency needs, and agricutural development and water conservation projects to improve life in communities around the globe. Our sale has contributed over $1.5 million to MCC over the past 30 years.
