Each year in Canada and the U.S., MCC relief sales offer a chance for fun while raising millions of dollars for MCC’s relief, development and peace work around the world. See table below for event dates and locations and links to their websites.
With the uncertainty about sales in 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns, please visit the websites or Facebook pages of your favorite sale for the latest information and activities. Many sales have now moved their auctions online, allowing national participation!
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.
