Welcome to our weekly newsletter
The MACC Minute December 29, 2022. We hope it will inspire you to get involved.
The 49th Christmas Season at MACC has closed. The community’s help provided good meals, festive events, and thoughtful gifts to residents facing difficult situations. Although MACC’s help does not come close to giving everything on one’s wish list, it gives them something remarkable; the hope of a better tomorrow and the knowledge that there are people who care about them.

Shout out to Helene and the ladies in the Alpha Kappa Gamma Chapter for their amazing donation of over $1,600.00 in cash and gift cards, alongside the 58 pre-made candy boxes, to our guests we served at noontime Christmas day. Their generosity enabled us to bless so many families with all they needed to enjoy their holiday meal this December.

Wrapping up 2022 has me reflecting on just how incredible MACC Staff and Volunteers are! With the many obstacles and challenges we faced this year, both economically on a business and community level, everyone came together to tackle and accomplish what was thrown our way. The positive feedback from our community and the individuals we serve truly makes it meaningful.
The joy of sharing is always in full force at MACC Pantry, especially during the Holiday season.
Meet Wendy, one of our spirited volunteers, who took time off work to be a part of the holiday cheer MACC pantry spreads during this time of year and all year around. We thank all our volunteers who live this joy every day.
Sunday, December 25th, MACC held a Christmas luncheon for our guests. We began sign-ups for reservations a week before to help keep everyone safe by limiting the numbers per seating. We served a delicious meal of; ham, mashed potatoes, and green beans. For dessert, we gave out cookies made by our MACC staff for guests to take home and enjoy!

I had the honor to represent MACC at the Homeless Memorial Service on December 21st at sunset. This memorial remembers those who have experienced homelessness in our communities and have passed over the last year. December 21st is chosen because it is the Winter Solstice, which has the shortest period of daylight and the longest nighttime of the year.
