Et cetera

Did you know there are over 40 Relief Sales in the United States and Canada? All those Relief Sales have several things in common: quilt auctions, food, a good time and most importantly: all raise money for relief, development and peace in the Name of Christ.


At the West Coast Mennonite Relief Sale we have those items as well as other activities, like Used Books, an Art Show, et cetera. So expect more and explore - you will likely find something that you really enjoy!

MY COINS COUNT

My Coins Count is not just for kids, it's for the whole family. Collect your pocket change, put it into a jar and help raise funds for MCC. Coins add up! Start collecting your coins now. Matching donations from businesses and family members are encouraged. Drop off your coins at the southeast corner of the Special Events Center Lobby on the Fresno Pacific University Campus.

USED BOOKS

Used Books is now located in Ashley Auditorium in McDonald Hall, where you will find thousands of books to choose from. If you love reading for hours, you can certainly spend hours here. How much does a book cost? Volunteers will tell you: "It's whatever you think its worth. It's all donation-based pricing, so give as you're led." And if you have a book or a box of books to donate, they will gladly take those, too. Come on by and spend some quality time looking for that one more book you can't do without.


ART SHOW

You are invited to be an exhibitor. Anyone associated with Mennonite churches, organizations or service experience is invited to exhibit paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, wood carving, etc. The Art Show will be located in the atrium of McDonald Hall.


For the 2019 Art Show, registration forms are due Monday, April 9. For questions, please contact Deborah Janzen at deborah.janzen@gmail.com or 559-252-6499. Download the artist entry letter here.
