Did you know that April 24 marks the beginning of National Volunteer Week?

We are so grateful for the thousands of Manitobans who have given their time and skills — whether that be repairing furniture or electronics at an MCC Thrift shop, sewing comforters, packing relief kits, or organizing a creative fundraiser — to support the work of MCC. Thank you for being a part of MCC!

Pictured: Elfrieda Tiessen loads up her trunk with comforters made by volunteers from the community of Crystal City, Man. This past winter, a group of approx. 30 Crystal City community members worked together to donate more than 180 comforters to MCC!
