He will have compassion on the poor and needy, and the lives of the needy he will save. ~ Psalms 72:13
It is time again and i can feel it in the air! The West Coast Mennonite Relief Sale is coming soon! I know that many of you have been preparing for and looking forward to this annual celebration of God's love. Start thinking about how you have been blessed this past year and decide how God wants you to 'Give With Compassion' for helping those who are hurting and in need. Donations raised are sent to Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) for continuing the work they have done over the past 90 plus years. MCC has been helping families who have been displaced as a result of floods, war and famine. These people are in need of food, clean water and jobs.
This year we are celebrating our 51st anniversary. Save your change at the end of each day and bring it to the sale for My Coins Count. There will be great food like BBQ, ethnic foods, German dishes, baked goods, homemade ice cream, and much more. Don't forget to get some fritters and zwieback! You don't want to miss the outside auction, kids auction, or main auction withe hundreds of quilts and antiques.
YOU can get involved in the sale by volunteering your time. We are always looking for energetic people with new ideas!
