Ukrainian Crisis Auction

an Event to support the Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Response

In response to the crisis in Ukraine, it is our desire to help bring comfort and aid to the survivors of ongoing violence and instability. We have come together with our brothers and sisters in Christ to form this online art auction for the purpose of raising money specifically for the "Ukrainian Crisis". With your support and the help of God, we will reach our goal. 

The Online Art Auction will open at 9am (all times are eastern) on October 14 and will close at 3pm on October 22, 2022. There will be a closing event from 1 - 4pm on October 22 where the auction items will be on display. The Ukrainian Crisis Auction Dessert Finale will be held at the Mechanicsburg Church of the Brethren, 301 Gale St, Mechanicsburg, PA. No tickets are needed, a free-will offering would be appreciated. There will be beverages and Ukrainian desserts available.

Proceeds will benefit Brethren Disaster Ministries, a ministry of the Church of the Brethren.

A link to the online Auction will be made available closer to October 14, 2022.

Auction items will be available for pickup on the following dates and times: Saturday, October 22 from 3 to 7pm; Sunday, October 23 from noon - 4pm; and Monday, October 24 from 10am - 2pm.
