Welcome to our weekly newsletter
The MACC Minute June 16, 2022. We hope it will inspire you to get involved.
A new perspective is a gift.
My accident six months ago, gifted me with a new appreciation for walking, for feeling good and for people who live with physical challenges. I will never take advantage of a handicapped restroom again, or resent handicapped parking spaces, or take walking for granted again. I am forever changed, more aware, grateful and thankful.
Assistant Executive Director
Lutheran Church of St Mark in Glastonbury, CT, invited me into their place of worship this past Sunday to give my MACC ministry and elaborate on our mission to build partnerships. While on-site, I had the pleasure of visiting the Saint Mark Garden, where members are growing vegetables, flower, herbs, and spices for us to share with our families. #Community

Community Kitchen Head Chef
We provide our community with a well-balanced meal and water daily. MACC receives so many generous food donations that we are able to not only give our guests a lunch, but at times fresh desserts, pastries, breads etc. This week we were fortunate enough to receive 5 cases with beautiful heads of broccoli. Thank you to Whole Foods in Glastonbury!

In addition to seeing the flowers and plants blooming and thriving in our recent weather, we also see the return of our daily lunch clientele enjoying time together at our community picnic tables that are open during the lunch service. It’s refreshing to hear the small talk, laughter and observing the interaction of sharing a meal that is long overdue.
