Making a difference for generations to come

Mennonite Central Committee’s (MCC) annual MCC Festival is held to help assist the lives of those around the world who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Volunteers are at the heart of MCC – from the Thrift Shops to the festivals

Mennonite Central Committee’s (MCC) annual MCC Festival is held to help assist the lives of those around the world who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

This year’s event takes place at Abbotsford’s Tradex, 1190 Cornell St. on Sept. 9 and 10.

Through the Generations initiative, MCC is touching the lives of millions by caring for people living with HIV/AIDS by supporting children orphaned by the disease, teaching prevention, and addressing the poverty and injustices that perpetuate the spread of the disease.

Each year, thousands descend on Tradex to enjoy food from around the world, listen to great entertainment, find treasures at the craft booths, take part in silent and live auctions, and more.

The MCC Festival has something for every generation. Bring your children to take part in the numerous activities set up just for them.

Cycling enthusiasts can take part in the Pedaling for Hope cyclothon.  Don’t forget to bring your pennies to the Penny Power Booth and see your change make a change in the world. Another highlight this year is the contribution from Fraser Way RV.

For the last 20 years, Fraserway RV in Abbotsford has contributed to the MCC Festival by providing a recreational vehicle for the auction, which they are doing again this year. There will be a number of RVs ranging from a truck camper to a travel trailer for the winning bidder to choose from.

MCC would like to offer a large thank you to the staff of Fraserway RV for their generosity and for support.
