Volunteers across Canada are preparing to participate in Mennonite Central Committee’s Great Winter Warm-up.

MCC is hoping that these volunteers will produce 6,500 comforters during the event, which takes place on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020.

What difference do these comforters make? In a video that MCC released last July, the organization says that the comforters it distributes offer a message of hope to people facing disaster and crisis around the world.

“A lot of work goes into making [MCC comforters] and a lot of people are involved in getting them to where they need to go,” the video’s narrator says.

“This is one of the ways we show God’s love to people whose lives have been disrupted by war and disaster, and it’s a reminder [that] they have not been forgotten.”
