Each year in Canada and the U.S., MCC relief sales are organized by hundreds of volunteers as an extension of their faith and their desire to share love in the name of Christ around the world through supporting MCC’s work of relief, development and peace. 

Relief sales and events celebrate community cooperation and generosity as they provide opportunities for fellowship, food and fun, raising millions of dollars annually to support the work of MCC!

The table below offers the current schedule of events, dates and locations with links to the sale websites for any additional updates.

Sales include auctions of quilts, furniture and other items and activities for children. Listen to local music or dig into delicious Mennonite specialties like farmer sausage in Manitoba, verenika in Kansas or strawberry pie in Pennsylvania. Some sales have fundraising runs, bicycle rides or other sporting events.

Make a difference by bidding in an auction or buying a slice of pie. Or explore how you could donate an item for auction, help prepare and serve food or give your time on the day of a sale.

Many relief sales also participate in My Coins Count, a wonderful way to help children understand that they can make a difference in the world. For special projects check out the resources on the right or link to these Blessing Bid materials.
