2023 Preliminary Results

October 7, 2023 • Posted in

Thank you to everyone who made the 57th annual Virginia Mennonite Relief Sale a success! I believe this is the highest preliminary total we’ve ever had! It was a beautiful day and many people came to the Fairgrounds to donate to support the efforts of MCC. I especially want to thank the many volunteers who make this event happen. Without them, this event would not happen. We all work together to raise money for MCC in the name of Christ. Through this weekend’s event, we have raised money to reach those Jesus calls us to serve.

If you would still like to donate, you can send a check, payable to VA Mennonite Relief Sale, to 601 Parkwood Dr, Harrisonburg VA 22802 or donate online.

Most things that happen at the Relief Sale started when someone took the initiative to say, “I would like to do___.” If you are feeling led, please consider organizing something for the relief sale next year.

Mark your calendars! The Walking Roots Band will have a benefit Christmas concert to raise money for MCC on December 10.
