If you have stopped by MACC recently, chances are that you have gawked at the multiple pieces of heavy equipment digging and smashing our parking lot. We found a weed and wanted to make sure we got to the roots…

Okay, you’re right, that is ridiculous! The truth is much more interesting. We are in the process of expanding our parking lot to meet some zoning requirements that would (finally) allow us to move the Church Mouse Thrift Shoppe onto our property. This is part of an ongoing effort to move all of our services to one location. Having a central campus makes it much easier for clients and volunteers to locate us for any possible need.

The grant that is allowing us to move the thrift shop to our property is also allowing us to install a handicap-friendly bathroom, put on new siding on some of our buildings, construct handicap access to the thrift shop, add a new exit, windows, stairs and a roof, build a cover for our outdoor freezer, install new flooring and an instant hot water system (so all of our guests can have a hot shower).

If all goes according to plan, we will have all our services running from our five buildings on Main Street in Manchester by the end of the Summer! In the meantime, you can park at Lincoln Center next door.
