Support MCC's relief work around the world

This year, all proceeds from Spring Fest will be directed towards the purchase and shipment of school kits.

Help provide school kits that contain supplies like pencils, pens and notebooks that are treasure for families who struggle to afford basic school supplies. Kits will be given to children whose lives have been disrupted by conflict, disaster and poverty around the world. 

 

Create a school kit and donate it at Spring Fest!

Contents (NEW items only)

  • 4 spiral or perforated-pages notebooks (8.5 in x 10.5 in and 70 sheets)
  • 8 new unsharpened pencils
  • 1 ruler (flat, good quality; must indicate 30 cm; inch markings optional)
  • 12 colored pencils (in packaging)
  • 1 large eraser
  • 2 new black or blue ballpoint pens
  • 1 small all metal pencil sharpener, one or two holes. All metal sharpeners can be found online at Amazon.com or Bazic.com or in the art supply section of retail stores like Staples. Plastic case pencil sharpeners are not accepted because these are poor quality and do not last as long. If you cannot find all metal sharpeners please pack the kits without them and we will add the sharpeners

School kits are distributed in a useful double drawstring cloth bag (11 3/4 x 16 3/4 in). You may: 

  • sew the bag yourself
  • request bags from an MCC material resources center or 
  • donate contents that we will place in a bag.
