Fundraising Focus

2017 Special Project

Supporting Literacy

The “Special Giving Project” at the Peach Cobbler Relief Sale will center on literacy.  When you know how to read, it’s easy to take the skill for granted. You read street signs, directions to assemble a bookshelf, the price of milk at the grocery store and the bright red “Urgent” on the front of an envelope. But around the world there are many people who never get the chance to learn to read or write or who don’t have the time or supplies to practice.  MCC supports literacy programs that give children and adults opportunities to learn how to read and write: opening doors to new jobs, new leadership opportunities and making everyday life a little bit easier.

You can help: Make your contribution during the Special Projection segment of the 2017 Peach Cobbler Mennonite Auction for World Relief – Saturday, September 16 at approximately 11:30 am.

 In 2016 we raised $24,170 supporting access to clean water. Thanks for your support!
