Dear Friend,

The donations from the 2018 Idaho Festival helped to raise $46,500 for M.C.C. projects in the U.S.A. and around the world.  Many persons contributed to this effort by donating items for the auction, country store, gently used items booth, children’s auction and food booths. We are seeking donations again for the 2019 event.  Items such as quilts, comforters, antique furniture, wood items, crafts, gift certificates, food products, used books or other donations that would help our efforts are welcome and appreciated.
