Ja’Niyah’s Birthday:
For the past several months this beautiful angel has been lighting up MACC Charities with her infectious smile and sweet temperament, and got to celebrate her 1st birthday!!
Ja’Niyah’s mother passed away suddenly when she was about 3 months old leaving her father to raise her alone. MACC staff and volunteers rallied around Little J and her Dad getting them everything they needed from diapers, to clothing, food, etc. Often times during lunch either a staff member or volunteer will hold Little J so that her dad can eat his lunch and enjoy a break.
About 2 weeks ago Ja’Niyah started walking and it was as if we were all taking her first steps with her, clapping and cheering her on. Now she is starting to zoom around the Soup Kitchen, greeting everyone.
Happy Birthday Little J, we wish you all the best that life can bring you!!!!

Christmas in April 2015:
167 bags of leaves, 2 houses, 6 gallons of paint, 30 plants, 40 volunteers, and 2 hours later the ‪#‎MACC‬ Team successfully completed Rebuilding Together Manchester CT. It was a wonderful day and we were so happy to have such a diverse group that ranged in ages and length of service with MACC. Part of our group consisted of Riverfront Family Church members,Manchester Community College students,first time MACC volunteers, and some regular pantry/kitchen/shelter/thrift shop volunteers. All in all it was an awesome day and we hope that if you were unable to join us this year then you will consider joining our team next year!

Ken’s article:
An article made itto The Reminder earlier this month about one of our talented pantry guests and friends, Ken Miller. Ken is a sweet, kind hearted single father of 2 young boys. His passion for art began when he was young and was tormented by bullies at school. Art was his escape, a way for him to express his emotions and clear his head. Through the different trials and tribulations in his life including a fractured hand, a round of cancer, and a car accident that left him permanently disabled, Kens art has grown and developed. He has expanded to oil painting, wood working, and has created amazing pieces that use gold foiling, diamonds, and rubies.
Ken hopes that he will be able to one day get his variety of art pieces into a gallery to show the community his unique story!
