Portage MCC Thrift Shop Mission Statement

Portage MCC exists for the purpose of:

* Generating resources for MCC and the local community

* Providing the community with opportunities to serve in the name of Christ and to donate items for re-use

* Making affordable goods available to those in need

Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) is a worldwide ministry of Anabaptist churches which share God's love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. 

As an MCC Thrift Shop, we support and promote the work of Mennonite Central Committee through our partnership with MCC Manitoba. We are part of a network of 16 MCC Thrift Shops in Manitoba, each independently operated. We also partner with local agencies to meet the local needs. 



Statement of Expectations for Volunteers

Portage MCC welcomes volunteers. It is an organization based on Christian values and principles and seeks to demonstrate these values and principles in its business dealings and relationships. Volunteers are expected to be respectful and charitable. Volunteers are to be knowledgeable about the mission of MCC and willing to support the mission. 




I have read and understand the Portage MCC "Mission Statement" and the “Statement of Expectations of Volunteers and Staff”, and agree to abide by them.
