Welcome to our weekly newsletter
The MACC Minute December 22, 2022. We hope it will inspire you to get involved.
Community is gathering together to fellowship versus sitting home alone. Preparing meals for our elders at the Senior Center is one of my favorite things MACC does. Our community was at its best this week, sharing a great holiday lunch, enjoying good entertainment, and sporting festive outfits. It was a joyful day that hopefully ended with a good night’s rest.

Ruth’s Circle did it again! The lovely ladies from Ruth’s Circle at Emmanuel Lutheran Church came together to enjoy each other’s company and bless the families with babies we serve. They donated over 30 layettes in all sizes, colors, and styles to hand-stitched blankets to keep our families and individuals warm. In addition, they provided over $200 for diapers.

This past week I had the privilege of catering and attending the Senior Center’s Holiday luncheon. The menu was salmon and shrimp linguini with a roasted garlic and tomato clam broth. For dessert, we served a hazelnut crunch cake. The event was lively and full of holiday cheer. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who made it successful.
What an amazing surprise we received on Thursday, December 15. Laura and her friends from AFSCME Local 991 dropped off a large assortment of non-perishable food items and toys. This gracious donation will keep our shelves filled and supply so many families with wonderful toys for their children to enjoy this holiday. Thank you, Laura and everyone from Local 991.
Three volunteers become Santa’s elves for the day in the spirit of Christmas and the holiday season. Meilani, Ryan, and Mariam packed presents in the MACC toy workshop. These presents were generously supplied to us by our community elves, who held toy drives to donate to us for families in need. Thank you to our incredible team of holiday helpers.
Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager
What a week this has been. We close out our Joy of Community Sharing 2022 Program, our Cold Weather Shelter program is full, and the 2022-2023 Operation Fuel Program opened up. However, in the midst of the hustle and bustle, we had an incredible donation of toys from our friends at Enjet Aero that will make some kids very happy.
