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:

Now, more than ever, the struggle for peace, social justice, and environmental protection means staying informed about local, state, national, and global issues.  MPJC provides educational programs, venue, and resources, serving as the tie that binds many grassroots “peace and justice” organizations in our community.  There are many ways you can contribute to positive change.  When you support MPJC with your financial contributions or by volunteering, you also strengthen the impact of our many partner organizations that are working with us to counteract a culture of war, injustice, and environmental degradation.

Many thanks to the major sponsors of the Monterey County Gives! 2018 campaign for their generosity and for inspiring philanthropy in others:
