Since the first sale in 1968, the Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale has been raising funds to support the projects and programs of Mennonite Central Committee, a worldwide ministry of Anabaptist churches. MCC shares God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. This sale is one of 35 relief sale events in the U.S. and Canada that together raise over 4.5 million dollars annually. The sale is made possible with the help of hundreds of volunteers who contribute their time and resources.
The Online Auction offers many high quality fun and unique items, services, experiences and gift certificates. Bid from anywhere online (we ship to continental USA). If you're local you can check out the items in person at the Relief Sale. Bidding begins online on Friday, September 17.
