Opportunities to Serve

The Arthur MCC Thrift Shop

ThriftShopIn November of 2014, AMC and other area churches including Sunnyside Mennonite Church opened the Arthur MCC Thrift Shop in Arthur. Proceeds from the thrift shop are used locally and globally to meet basic human needs and work for peace and justice through Mennonite Central Committee. You can get involved by donating gently used items to the shop, volunteering to work a couple hours a month or simply by shopping there! Every purchase at an MCC Thrift Shop is a gift to the world! And make sure you follow Arthur MCC Thrift Shop
on Facebook where pictures of recently donated items are posted regularly.
