MCC Fall Festival Will Be Held Online

2020 is the centennial anniversary of the first journey made by the Mennonite Central Committee to present-day Ukraine to deliver money and clothing to the war-stricken region which, until this time, had provided many European Mennonites with safety and prosperity.

Today, MCC shares God’s love and compassion across the globe through relief, development and peace. To honor and celebrate this centennial milestone, the Oregon Mennonite Festival for World Relief is making a goal to raise $100,000.
