Relief sale raises more than $450,000

On Sept. 27 and 28, the 46th annual Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale raised more than $450,000 for the Mennonite Central Committee.

Mennonite Central Committee is a worldwide ministry of Anabaptist churches, which shares God’s love and compassion for all by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. The proceeds number is before expenses and was approximately $60,000 more than last year.

Hand-stitched quilts and comforters are always a highlight for the sale. This year the top-selling quilt was sold for $10,500 and the overall proceeds were higher than they’ve been for several years, officials said. There were approximately 250 quilts and comforters sold on that Saturday.

Leading up to the sale children at church are encouraged to collect coins for Penny Power, though adults also get involved. This money is used specifically by MCC to fund water projects around the world where clean water is not readily available. This year was a record year for Penny Power as $105,000 was raised.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
