Start collecting coins now for 2013 Penny Power at the Relief Sale April 5 & 6!
2013 Penny Power: Join us for another exciting year of Penny Power. In 2012, 162 congregations or individuals sent in collections of coins, totaling $81,152. With an overall challenge match of $50,000 and a $15,000 challenge match from the Harleysville area churches, the total raised by Penny Power at the Pennsylvania Relief Sale was $146,152. In 2013, we'll try to raise even more. We again have the two generous challenge matches: up to $50,000 will be matched overall and up to $15,000 will be matched from the Harleysville area.
This year’s Penny Power collection will benefit MCC’s WaterWorks projects in various places around the world. A person can survive for up to two months without food, but will die in a few days without water. Water is life – but for many families around the world, this basic need is out of reach.
