Your gift to "cash for kits" covers material aid shipping costs and provides funding to purchase items locally in-country. Local purchases enable an immediate or culturally appropriate response. For example, in Haiti MCC provided funding for the purchase of local food, cooking and kitchen equipment and temporary shelters after the Haiti Earthquake in Dec. 2010. MCC receives requests for up to $100,000 annually for these types of purchases.
Or if you prefer to designate your gift to be used by your provincial MCC office to purchase MCC kit contents, please use the comments box to designate your gift to one of the following offices: MCC Alberta, MCC British Columbia, MCC Manitoba, MCC Ontario, or MCC Saskatchewan.
If you are donating to help detained migrants at the U.S. - Mexico border, please designate your donation in the comments box of the donation form to "Immigration detainee care kit".
