IN THE BROADER CHURCH & COMMUNITY

Classrooms around the world

When a child learns, communities benefit and lives change. From Canada to Burkina Faso, and Bangladesh to Serbia, MCC is promoting education in order to foster leadership capabilities and help young people overcome obstacles locally and around the world. For pictures and more information visit, https://mcccanada.ca/stories/classrooms-around-world Mennonite Church Canada’s 2017 Annual General Meeting will be streamed online on July 12 from 6 – 7 pm CDT.

Help students start the school year right!

MCC is partnering with Healing of the Seven Generations to collect school essentials for First Nations children in the Waterloo region so that these children, adolescents and adults are well equipped to start the school year. A list of requested supplies is available at mcco.ca/schoolessentials or by calling Hannah Thiessen at 519-745-8458 ext 217. Please drop off supplies at our 50 Kent Avenue, Kitchener warehouse by Aug 18.

Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS) receiving financial donations for forest fires in British Columbia.

People in BC have already lost houses to the fires and we are planning for MDS volunteers to help in the recovery phase of this disaster. MDS is accepting financial donations for that recovery. For further updates on the MDS response and financial donations go to mds.mennonite.net/ or call the MDS office at 1-866-261-1274.

Thank You!

A huge thank you to everyone who responded to our urgent request for onesies in March! We exceeded our goal of 196 onesies to include in our infant care kits. A batch of 96 kits has already shipped to Ukraine where we partner with orphanages, and another 96 will be loaded on a shipment next week to Jordan that will help families affected by the conflict in Syria. It was really moving to receive and to send these beautiful, soft, warm gifts.
