Welcome to the our weekly newsletter
The MACC Minute December 30, 2021. We hope it will inspire you to get involved.
As the last family received their holiday meal from the joy of community sharing program I was able to take a deep breath, relax, and smile. As the new Pantry Manager this holiday season overwhelmed me but, with MACC’s dedicated volunteers having my back, we made it through to enjoy our own holiday season happily. Happy New Years to all.
Director of Services
A New Year is a clean slate; what will you do with your fresh start? Spend time helping in your community, paying it forward, donating gently used items to those in need, or maybe it starts with an ASK. However you choose to ring in the New Year, I hope it’s filled with new spontaneous adventures to last a lifetime.
Chef Ferdinand Cruz
MACC’s Community Kitchen
I had a great time assembling these Yukon gold chili bowls with my Wednesday group. Each perfect lunch portion consisted of 3 boiled Yukon potatoes, pepper jack cheese, scallions, crumbled corn flakes (substitute Tostitos), and a beef and bean chili garnished with avocado sour cream. To finish the meal, we added a side garden salad. Ideal for a snowy day!
As the year 2021 comes to an end and we forge into a new year, I look back and find that my biggest hurdle to overcome was making sure that all volunteers, new and long serving, remained safe during Covid, while still meeting the needs of MACC. My ability to juggle schedules was pushed, but I did it successfully. #NOCOVIDHERE!
Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager
I’m Tim, the new Community Outreach & Emergency Services Manager. I hope to use my background in Business Management, as well as working with at risk individuals in my new position. Working alongside my amazing new coworkers and volunteers the past 3 weeks has made the transition unbelievably welcoming and heartwarming. Blessed to be a part of the MACC Family.
