It’s a Wrap: Meat canning 2019 is in the books and we couldn’t have done it without all the volunteers who came out, all hours, to help get the project completed. Final numbers: 32,000 lbs of chicken resulted in 21,667 cans and 14 comforters were knotted during canning. In addition, WMS sent to MCC 100 school kits, 65 hygiene kits, 13 sewing kits, 26 comforters knotted (Jan-Nov), and 12 comforters, 19 blankets and 16 twin sheets for the Great Winter Warm Up.
The majority of canned meat is distributed through Mennonite Central Committee to countries in desperate need of food. While ten percent of the filled cans are distributed to local area food pantries.
We are grateful for the generous outpouring of financial resources and volunteers.
This project is an above budget ministry. Donations can be made through out the year. Donations should be sent to the church and designated for "canning".
