As we wrap up Volunteer Appreciation Month, I can’t let the month go without acknowledging Ciaran, from the Coventry Transitional Program. He’s really stepping things up, with no task he’ll shy away from. Whether it’s involved with food preparation, doing dishes, working the lunch door or simply saying “Yes Chef,” it’s been a pleasure working with him! Kudos BIG GUY!

Bernie Sykes, Caitlin, Jordan, and Lexie as well as other members of the CCSU Social Work Club, along with the Army Navy Club did a bottle collection drive. They used some of the proceeds to help MACC. On Saturday April 8, they donated non-perishable items along with a generous monetary donation to support the important work that we do here.

Our motto is Kindness Wins and the kindness you all bring is unmatchable! Thank you for giving your time to MACC and being the reason someone smiles today! #ThankYouVolunteers!
