This is a
community effort of many churches and individuals to help
bring agricultural assistance, community development and
social services for the hungry and needy of the world.
Proceeds from the sale help support the work of the Mennonite
Central Committee (MCC), a cooperative relief and service
agency located in Akron, Pennsylvania. MCC was started
Mennonites in 1920 to help alleviate the famine in Russia.
Today it has numerous volunteers working in America and
countries around the world. Eighty percent of
relief sale proceeds
go toward MCC efforts. Twenty percent is distributed
locally to help people in need.
