Take the sting out of winter’s chill by joining The Great Winter Warm-up: At Home. Throughout the month of February, compassionate people like you are giving the gift of warm comforters to those in need. 

Last year, countless volunteers generously gave their time and talents to create more than 9,000 comforters (a new record!) at events across Canada, the U.S. and Europe.  

This year, we’re asking people to stay safe and participate from home instead.  

Thanks to caring people like you, thousands of our global neighbors received a comforter last year. Together we can share warmth, comfort and a tangible message of God’s love with those in need. Here’s how you can get involved.

Create

Create a comforter in your own home. It’s a great excuse to use up any fabric you’ve stored up. Or maybe you want to take your mind off things by learning a new skill. We have plenty of tips to help you along the way. Once you’re finished, you can drop off your completed comforter at the MCC office nearest you. 

Share

Are you an avid comforter maker? We’d love to see a flurry of comforters on social media. Post a photo or video of any comforter you’ve made, whether it’s from this month or a while ago. Make sure to tag MCC (@MCCpeace) so we can share your wonderful and warm creations to inspire others.
