Welcome to our weekly newsletter

The MACC Minute August 25, 2022.  We hope it will inspire you to get involved.

Beth Stafford

Executive Director/CEO

One undeniable truth I have learned at MACC is that everyone needs help; the only variation is the why and how long one may need it. It is not a matter of “if” but of “when” assistance is required. When your time comes, you will receive it best if you have given your best to others when they need it.

Community Kitchen Head Chef

I can’t stress enough the importance of building partnerships in our community. During the summer weeks, we have received tons of donations from the Manchester Youth Service Bureau. Items include milk, yogurts, freshly portioned vegetables, sandwiches, and juice cartons. These items allowed us to bulk up our community lunches with a few extra goodies.

Thank You, Manchester Youth Service Bureau!!

MACC families received an opportunity to find their inner gardener. A big thank you to Nephertiti Amen and her daughter, Shekhinah Diaz, from Ix Chel Hydroponics, for donating hydroponic starter kits. These kits include a variety of seeds to grow beautiful fruits and veggies indoors for each family to enjoy, and offers a great opportunity to learn a new skill.

The 2022 CROP Hunger Walk to support CWS is HAPPENING!! We are asking you to become part of The Mighty MACC Team with your steps and donations on Sunday, October 16, 2022 at 1:00pm.

Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager

Even In the midst of the dog days of summer, MACC’s Community Outreach & Emergency Services is already planning for the upcoming cold weather months. Just as the seasons gradually change throughout the year, our preparedness also gradually changes. If you have any new or gently used men’s and/or women’s hoodies, gloves, hats or winter boots, please consider a donation.
