What is The Great Winter Warm-Up?

The Great Winter Warm-Up jump starts MCC’s supply of comforters that are sent to people in crisis all around the world each year. In 2018, MCC sent more than 53,000 comforters as a practical message of love and compassion in the name of Christ. East Coast supporters generated nearly 30,000 of those comforters for MCC’s ministries!

On one day, January 18th, MCC has set a goal of collecting 6,500 comforters across the U.S. and Canada for distribution to people in need around the world. But in the East Coast, we've set a regional goal of collecting 5,000 comforters this month!

Join us in Ephrata for The Great Winter Warm-Up!

You won't want to miss our event January 18th at the Material Resources Center in Ephrata as we work hard towards our goal. A light lunch will be served at noon with guest speaker Ron Byler, MCC U.S. Executive Director, presenting at 12:30 p.m. We hope you can make it! Bring along a favorite needle, thimble and small scissors if you have them. No experience is necessary and this event is open to all ages! No sign-up is necessary, but please invite your friends to this event.
