There are ten MCC Thrift Shops in BC and they are a vital part of our ministry. The Thrift Shops sell donated items in order to raise income for the ministry of MCC. The shop is a ministry in and of itself, providing low cost goods to people in our community as well as providing international and local aid. Thrift Shops also make a valuable contribution to good stewardship and a healthy environment by recycling items that might otherwise be thrown away. They also provide a sense of community to volunteers and the people we serve through social interaction in a caring environment.
