Buckets of Thanks relief kit updates

Track a relief kit's journey.

This Thanksgiving, you've shown your gratitude and inspired hope for those in need across the globe by sharing a Bucket of Thanks.
 
Our local partners in Jordan will distribute relief buckets just like the one you filled to Syrian refugee families in Jordan and vulnerable Jordanians who have been displaced due to conflict and disaster.
 
But before they are received, the buckets undergo quite the journey...And this year, you're invited to come along!
 

Kits are for Caring

Kits are for Caring is a FREE resource to engage kids of all ages with generosity at Thanksgiving. This curriculum has everything you need to guide a group of children to share God's gifts by collecting relief bucket materials for those in need around the world.

This resource can be adjusted for age as well as settings from Sunday School to the classroom or even for a family. It can also be customized to be part of multiple Sunday school lessons or a one-day event. This resource includes:

Your free worship guide for World Refugee Day

Imagine having your predictable daily routine disrupted by bombs and gunfire and losing all sense of control and safety for your family. Imagine going to bed hungry, worrying about where your next meal will come from or if your water supply is safe for your children to drink. Imagine not having a community of like-minded people to feel connected to.

This is the experience of millions of refugees around the world.

Government Communications

MCC Canada communicates regularly with the Government of Canada on matters of policy. The Peace & Justice Office documents all written communication sent directly by MCC Canada, as well as many of the letters sent by partners or coalitions that MCC Canada supports. The following list is intended to provide an overview of this important dimension of our work.

Advocacy

In order to do our work of relief, development and peacebuilding, it’s important that MCC addresses policies that contribute to poverty and injustice. Advocacy is how we do that.

Our advocacy work is rooted in the understanding that we are called by God to be a voice with and for the poor, oppressed and marginalized. We take our inspiration from the biblical witness of Moses, Esther, John the Baptist, the prophets and Jesus himself.
