Hello MECA family!

We are excited to announce that after a year hiatus, the Palestinian Holiday Crafts Bazaar is back and better than ever! The Holiday Bazaar, sponsored by MECA and Joining Hands, supports the beautiful work of artisans and craftspeople throughout Palestine who are preserving their traditions and generating much-needed income. Watch this video to learn more about this annual event.

This year, the Holiday Bazaar will take place for one day on October 24th in MECA’s parking lot, observing COVID safety regulations.

To be able to pull off this event, we need your help. Our volunteers have always been there to make this bazaar possible. This year, we are calling on our community, returning volunteers and new ones, and all those who are able to help, to sign up to volunteer! We need help on the day of the bazaar, October 24th, as well as the weeks leading up to it.

Please contact me at voulette@mecaforpeace.org, call 510-548-0542 during our working hours (9am-4pm M-F), or fill out this simple form if you are interested in volunteering. Please indicate that you would like to volunteer specifically for the bazaar.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions! Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
