Without volunteers, there would be no Kansas Mennonite Relief Sale.
There are many ways you can get involved with the KMRS, from organizing and overseeing various projects right down to the very last detail!

Verenike Making Committee: In order for us to continue to make the verenike, 2 volunteers are urgently needed to Chair the Verenike Making Committee. Current Chair will train this year. Duties include preparation day before Making Day and leadership on Making Day. Once Verenike are loaded in truck, duties are complete and you are free on Sale days. Contact Jim Robb at 620-747-0186 or email@example.com
Domestic Arts Building Verenike/Sausage Booth: Need volunteers for the Committee so a rotation of Committee members can begin. The Committee is responsible for preparing the verenike and sausage that is served in the Domestic Building. They also obtain volunteers to help in the trailer and serving the food. Contact Mark Stucky for more details at 620-714-1159 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Feeding the Multitude Saturday Sausage Cooking Chair: Responsibilities on Saturday only include making sausage for breakfast and lunch; obtain volunteers to help serve lunch and help in cooking trailer. Contact Delon Martens at 620-960-9471 or email@example.com
New Year Cookies Committee: Looking for several additional committee members. Under the current structure primary commitment is Thursday (optional), Friday and Saturday of the Sale. Tasks include initial set up of the cooking trailer, overseeing the preparation of the dough and monitoring/assisting the volunteers frying and glazing the cookies. Ideally would like to have enough committee members to split up the Friday and Saturday duties. Contact Cedric or Becky Blough at 620-345-3088 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
New Year’s Cookies
Come be part of a well oiled machine! Every year, more than 150 volunteers help to produce nearly 35,000 new year’s cookies in 2 days. That’s about 1 cookie every 1.3 seconds while we are frying! Shifts are available starting at 2:00 p.m. on Friday and 7:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. To sign up to help, click on the Sign Up! button below.
