What's next for the New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale?

The safety and well-being of our attendees, volunteers and community are of the utmost importance to us. In light of the current public health crisis, the New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale (NHMRS) organizing committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the much-loved and much-anticipated 2020 NHMRS in its regular format.

During these times of uncertainty, Mennonite Central Committee (MCC)  needs our support more than ever, so we are investigating alternatives including online auctions, mini-relief sales and virtual events and would love to hear your suggestions. Please send them to info@nhmrs.com.

MCC is well-positioned through its ongoing work to address the threats of COVID-19 for some of the world’s most vulnerable people, including people displaced from their homes. Where possible, MCC is scaling up water, sanitation, hygiene, health and food work. The closure of thrift shops and the cancellation of several spring relief sales will significantly affect MCC’s funding. We encourage you to continue to support MCC through your donations by mailing a cheque to 203-50 Kent Ave, Kitchener, ON N2G 3R1 or online at mcco.ca/donate.

Thank you for your ongoing support. During these uncertain times, we value prayers for our friends and neighbours, around the world and locally, affected by COVID-19.
