Our sincerest thanks to Monterey Peninsula Volunteer Services Benefit Shop for recent grants supporting the Monterey Peace and Justice Center. Their generous funding helped us purchase a storage shed and filing cabinets, allowing us to free up needed space inside the Peace Center.

MPVS gratefully accepts donations of clean, gently used clothing, housewares, books, and much more, which they sell at the Benefit Shop in Seaside. Your donation has a double benefit — to the person who purchases it and to the many worthy nonprofit organizations that receive funds from MPVS’s grant program.

Visit the benefit shop at 655 Broadway Ave. in Seaside or online:

We sincerely thank the Arts Council for Monterey County for making these resources available to our organization and we appreciate the generosity of the grant funders, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
