Who blessed who?
After directing a caller to a program in their hometown, I learned they did not qualify due to having used the assistance within the last nine months. I responded, “I feel sad.” Their response, “Listen, just seeing this empathy makes my heart swell! Thank you for being so kind. I trust God’s timing, and He will provide.”

As a child growing up, I will always remember the distant sound of the ice cream truck playing its tune as it approached our street during the summer. At the Kitchen, we try to give the kids who come to our lunch service the same excitement that I felt as a kid. The look in their eyes is absolutely priceless!
Knights of Columbus Campbell Council #573 is hosting a Drive-By Food Drive to benefit MACC. In partnership with the St Teresa of Calcutta Parish, the food drive will be held on Saturday, August 20 from 9-12 at the St Bridget School parking lot, 80 Main Street, Manchester. Needed items include: mayonnaise, ketchup, peas, jelly, chicken noodle soup, and instant potatoes.
A big thanks to the volunteers from Wapping Church. On Saturday, August 14, they came in and helped with tasks all across MACC. They made sandwiches and filled the food bags in the kitchen, stocked and labeled needed food items, that they generously donated, sorted new packages of socks, sorted thrift store donations and ground 33 bags of coffee beans.

Last week, MACC was fortunate to partner with the Manchester Police Department’s Officer Sampaio & Manchester Fire Department’s newest recruits to assemble backpacks and purses filled with basic necessities for our homeless neighbors to receive when in need and encountered by our various Emergency Service related agencies around the clock. This new MACC program will continue as the 24/7/365 Initiative.
