MCC is happy to announce that we have received a $2,500 grant from Westminster Presbyterian Church’s Benevolence fund! Our thanks go to the congregation and Benevolence Committee for your ongoing support of MCC’s mission and programs.
MCC is grateful for the continued support of donors who contributed to a grant for $8,000 from the Bama Works Fund of the Dave Matthews Band, and grateful to CACF for its outstanding support of nonprofits in our community.
Named in honor of longtime MCC mediator, volunteer, and supporter Judy Morton, this scholarship will cover 100% of the recipient’s fee for the Basic Mediation Skills course.
