While you can’t always control your health, you can take steps to make recovery easier by being content with your weaknesses and following doctors’ orders. My recovery journey from open heart surgery has begun and with that I am grateful for all of your thoughts and prayers. “There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still” ~ Corrie ten Boom




MACC Helps with Poverty

Phil Leggett

Pantry Manager

Since the beginning of 2020 our lives have been turned upside down and inside out due to Covid19. Just when we thought we could relax and breathe again, new variants emerged forcing us to adapt and change once again. We here at MACC implemented a new Covid questionnaire to monitor safety and ensure that everyone stays healthy.  #NoCovidHere

Shannon Baldassario

Director of Services

Got Covid? MACC was a recipient of the BinaxNOW testing kits from our local health department to distribute out in the community to those we serve. It took one session to hand out all kits through our Emergency Pantry and Kitchen. One box was given to each individual that day and no one walked away empty handed. #StayCovidSafe

Since the beginning of December, MACC has been operating a Winter Sheltering Program for those facing a housing crisis. It’s an honor to be able to provide these guest with 3 meals, 7 days a week. Just yesterday I decided to whip up a childhood classic, white rice with Spanish stewed beans and chicken. A great dish for cold days!

Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager

“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way,” a quote attributed to Martin Luther King Jr.
Here at MACC, I believe that all MACC staff and volunteers try to do both,
fulfilling the MACC Mission by providing great services with attention to the small details. What a way to honor an amazing man.
