This fall, give the gift of a relief bucket.

This year is one we couldn't have imagined. But many of us still have much to be thankful for. Will you join us in showing gratitude this Thanksgiving by giving a Bucket of Thanks?

But what is a Bucket of Thanks, you ask? It's a container filled with essential hygiene items, also known as a relief kit. Even in a pandemic, we send these kits all around the world to families in need.

Our local partners still need 19,000 more relief kits this year for families affected by disaster or conflict. 

In Manitoba, our goal is to collect 500 buckets to send to families in need worldwide.

You can help by sponsoring a bucket or dropping off the supplies that go into a relief kit at your local MCC office throughout the month of October.

Are you participating as a student of Canadian Mennonite University? 

Work with friends or classmates to raise money together and help fill a bucket with essential hygiene items!

Return your fully sponsored or filled bucket on September 28 on campus at CMU and you'll receive fun swag and a chance to win prizes! 

Contact Jubilee Dueck Thiessen for more information.

If you'd like to participate online, you can sponsor a full or partial relief kit as a student of CMU by giving to this page: Buckets of Thanks with CMU
