UPDATE: bidding is now closed. We are ecstatic about this week's silent auction piece!😍🐦 These 24 Birds of Canada prints come in original packaging from the Toronto Daily Star (1959) and are in great condition.

So accurate are Fenwick Lansdowne's birds studies that museums commission his works" "The text on this bird series were written by The Star Weekly's Hugh M. Halliday. For two decades this veteran naturalist has been traveling from the Atlantic to the Pacific and far into the Arctic writing about Canada's wildlife" Imagine these gorgeous prints framed and displayed, adding a unique natural element to your space 🌿 Here are the ground rules as a reminder... 1) All silent auction items that are posted onto our social media will be clearly labelled and you are only able to place a bid on those! 2) To place a bid, simply comment below on the picture and list the price you would like to bid 3) All bids must increase by a minimum of $5 increments. 4) The auction will end the next day at 4pm (ex. if an item is put up on Monday morning, it will end on Tuesday at 4pm). 5) We will close the comm…

πŸ‘ Today we are spotlighting our Restorative Justice volunteers! #MCCOntatio #MCCPograms Thank you to Stephanie White (first image), Ivan Unger (second image), Pieter Looyenga (third image) for taking part in the Circles of Support and Accountability. πŸ‘ πŸ‘‰ When you support MCC Thrift, you are also supporting the Restorative Justice Program. Here are some words from Ivan Unger: "I was first introduced to the Circles of Support and Accountability through my congregation. God's generosity in my life has been something that I needed to share, especially after hearing theΒ sad stories behind some of these men's lives. Our monthly 'gatherings' with the Circles of Support and Accountability include a simple meal, thought-provoking discussions, various forms of worship, and often table games. Some call this their church, but more often just their safe space." Volunteers - we deeply appreciate your commitment to MCC! πŸ•ŠοΈ To learn more about this program visit this link: https://mcccanada.ca/learn/what/restorative-justice #thankyouvolunteers #mccontarioprograms #volunteerspotlight #mccpeace #Migration #Refugees #thriftdifferent #community

For this Tell it Tuesday we are happy to feature Maureen Crawford! We are SO thankful for Maureen's faithful help in crafts and stationary! πŸ“’ Maureen has volunteered with us for about 7 years! Prior to Thrift on Kent, she was at Generations, the old MCC Kitchener store that has now moved to our current 50 Kent location. Her favorite crafting pass time is card making, and when asked why she volunteers with us, Maureen stated that she enjoys the comradery of other volunteers and the feeling that her efforts are worthwhile. 🌟 Maureen helps package and price items like yarn, notebooks, pencils, markers, office supplies, party supplies, sewing supplies, and many other things for your crafting needs. Be sure to check out our crafting section in store and online! Thank you so much, Maureen! β€πŸ‘ #thriftonkent #thrifting #mcc #mcco #mccpeace #nonprofit #mymccthriftfind #kitchener #kwawesome #thriftdifferent #thriftingmatters #dtk #supportlocal #sustainableshopping #supportglobal #mccontario #onlineshopping #onlinethrift
