MCC Mobile Meat Cannery

 

Each year since 1946, MCC has sent out a mobile meat cannery, which MCC workers and volunteers use to preserve hundreds of thousands of cans of meat for communities in need across the globe...Last year's supply went to feed the hungry in North Korea, Haiti, with over 2000 kilograms distributed locally. Al Friesen stopped in for the final batches of canned pork, and the dedication service.

 

 

{VIDEO} Parkside School Parent Council Fundraiser Kick Off

Every school year the Parkside Parent Council...along with the help of the students...raise funds to purchase something needed in the school that will benefit the children. The staff provide a "wish list" of items and the Parent Council chooses items from this list to purchase. This year the funds raised will be used to purchase equipment for Band, Choir and Drama. All the children are involved in one or more of these areas, so they all benefit. The Parent Council will also continue to support the Breakfast program provided at the school every morning.
For just $25 you will receive 12 valuable coupons to use at various businesses around Altona and area in the year 2015. There is also a draw ticket that can be filled out and entered for a Samsung Tablet at a participating business. This draw will be made at the School Spring Concert in May 2015.
The Parkside School children began selling the coupon folders Nov 20th....which would make an awesome Christmas gift!!!
Please support our kids in their efforts and help us to patronize not only the businesses that have a coupon in the folder, but also our generous sponsors that have placed ads in the folder. We have received overwhelming support from the businesses in our area!!
