MCC calls for relief kit donations
AKRON, Pa. – Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) is requesting donations of relief kits to restock supplies that enable MCC to act quickly in a crisis or disaster. Recent shipments of relief kits to Syrian refugees who fled to Jordan to escape violence have depleted the reserve.
Relief kits supply basic necessities of daily living, such as towels, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes and laundry soap. They are packed in 5-gallon buckets which many recipients also find useful.
To see a complete list of supplies and drop-off locations, visit mcc.org/kits/relief . Also, financial gifts are urgently needed to respond to the crisis in the Middle East, along with your prayers for peace. See mcc.org/middleeastcrisis .
