August 6 School Kit Assembly
August 6, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am CDT
A Sunday of Worshipful Work
This Sunday we will work together to assemble school kits for Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), the relief and development arm of the Mennonite Church. At this web address, you can read more about school kits and other kits that MCC provides to people in need around the world: https://mcc.org/get-involved/kits/school
“School kits are MCC’s most requested item. They are given to students displaced by natural disaster or war or struggling to afford schooling.
Notebooks and pencils are treasures for families who struggle to afford basic school supplies. School kits often are requested after disasters and help bring normalcy to children whose families have been forced to flee their homes.
70,652 [school kits] shipped last year to Jordan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Ethiopia, Iraq, Democratic Republic of Korea (North Korea), the U.S., Serbia and more.”
Join us as we assemble school kits together!
