Join us for the most diverse, delicious, and friendly potluck in Milwaukee!
RPCVs bring dishes from their countries of service--or any dish that strikes their fancy while family and friends of volunteers conjure up more foods.
Those interested in and supportive of Peace Corps add even more options to this luscious feast.
The success of this event is a result of the vast array of dishes from all over the world by those who enjoy, support and are interested in Peace Corps!
This year's event will be at the wonderful Riverwest Jazz Gallery!
You will be able to renew your MPCA membership and buy the beautiful 2015 calendars at the event.
INTERCULTURAL ADVENTUROUS BOOKS-SEEKING NOMINATIONS
The deadline has been extended for nominations for the Adventurous Mailbox! See below for details.
The Adventurous Mailbox is teaming up with an anonymous MPCA Member to donate 10 Adventurer Packages to needy kids in the Milwaukee area. The MPCA Board is accepting nominations to select girls and boys in grades 4-6 to receive packages from abroad containing adventure books introducing world cultures, as well as ‘top-secret’ access to the educational and fun online community, Crameye’s World.
Andrew Bliss is the creator and founder of The Adventurous Mailbox. When asked why he would choose to partner with a Peace Corps Association for charitable giving, he replied: “A sense of adventure and feeling of boundless possibility should be in every kid’s mind, regardless of situation. People who served in the Peace Corps have lived through their own adventures helping others around the world and understand the value of such international, intercultural experiences. ”
Please email your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please supply the following information: 1) child’s first name, 2) school grade, and 3) short paragraph of why you think this child should be chosen. Once winners are selected, MPCA will contact you for the child’s mailing address. Deadline for nominations is October 31, 2014. Winners will be announced mid-November.
For being such a great organization to work with, Andrew is offering a discount to the MPCA community for the month of October. Use the promo code MPCA-RPCV at check-out to save $10 on the Adventurer Package. If you want to give one Adventurer Package to siblings, an upgrade is available so that each child receives an envelop with their name and their own password to Crameye’s World on-line.
On behalf of MPCA, thank you to our anonymous member donor and to The Adventurous Mailbox for opening up the world to some of our local, less-fortunate kids. The Adventurous Mailbox is “Inspiring kids to embrace the world and the people in it.”
