Welcome to the our weekly newsletter
The MACC Minute December 23, 2021. We hope it will inspire you to get involved.
Francis, one of our volunteers, brought laughter and joy to the MACC campus. Francis had a Santa suit at home gathering dust in his closet. He decided, this year, he would wear it during his shift to spread the joy of the season to everyone. Thank you Francis for reminding us, it’s the little things in life. #MerryMACCChristmas

The overwhelming love and support during the 2021 Joy of Community Sharing Program from our community partners has grown the Grinch’s heart three sizes bigger this year. The increased need not only from community members but partners was accepted and all have received support. Wishing you and yours an extra measure of comfort, joy and hope this week. Merry Christmas!

I had the luxury of stopping by the senior center today for their lunch service. It brought me joy being able to visit and chat with some of our locals. A few suggested items for next month’s menu, above all it was all positive feedback. As I departed the lunch room it was great seeing satisfied faces with full belly’s.
This past weekend we had a group of Santa’s Elves from ECHN appear using Santa’s magic powers to write letters to all the kids that have mailed letters to Santa. Reading the children’s letters, became clear to us all that children do still believe in Santa and the North Pole, and let’s not forget Mrs. Claus and the reindeer!
