MCC Staffer, Kyle Rudge joins the Great Winter Warm-up and visits with participants.


To kick-off MCC's Centennial year, the Great Winter Warm-up was held across North America (and even a few locations in Europe) on January 18th, 2020. The event exceeded its goal of 6,500 comforters and as of January 30th collected a grand total of 8,200 comforters. These colourful and warm comforters will be delivered to families who have been displaced by conflict or disaster.
