Dear Friend,

The Idaho Mennonite World Relief Festival Board is currently planning the twelfth annual Idaho Mennonite World Relief Festival for Saturday, April 21, 2018.  This festival raises funds for Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), and we need your help to make it a successful event in 2018.  It has been a wonderful eleven years, so please help us keep it going!

We are asking you to consider a donation of a high quality item or items this year.  Any contribution or donation that you could provide would be helpful.  We are seeking donations of hand-crafted items (including wooden items and toys); quilts, comforters, wall-hangings and afghans; antiques; restored or newly built furniture; packaged and canned foods; baked goods (weekend of the sale); used books; gently used goods (specifically only kitchen and dining ware, toys or children supplies – no clothing or items in poor condition); gift certificates, get away experiences and cash (Check our website at for contributing an on-line cash donation). Most items in good condition can be utilized somewhere in the sale. The Festival Committees will determine where your item(s) can bring the best price during the event. Please complete the contribution form enclosed in this letter and return it with your donation.

It is important that you contact a committee member listed below as soon as possible if you plan to contribute.  If needed, arrangements can be made to collect your donation. **Please have your donation to the contact person by Mar. 31, 2018.

$48,000 was donated to MCC for world relief in 2017. The goal of the 2018 festival is to send as much of the proceeds as possible from the event to MCC.  Let’s see if we can top last year’s amount in 2018.  We are counting on your donations to help. It will be our pleasure to promote your item(s) at the festival.  Thank you in advance for your support!
