plain dividerOur 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 to MPVS 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.

The Monterey Peace and Justice Center is the grateful recipient of a Community Arts grant award in July 2019 by the Arts Council of Monterey County to fund MPJC’s 2019-2020 Art Gallery Project. The funding will be used to produce ongoing art exhibits tied to peace and social justice themes.

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.

Visit the Arts Council for Monterey County website to learn more about the organization, their art education programs,
and their work in bringing arts to the community:
