Cash for kits
Your gift to "cash for kits" covers material aid shipping costs and provides funding to purchase items locally. 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. MCC receives requests for up to $100,000 annually for these types of purchases.
