Welcome to our weekly newsletter
The MACC Minute June 9, 2022. We hope it will inspire you to get involved.
Helping others can be as simple as a smile or as involved as sharing a meal or providing a service. All help requires action. At MACC, we see the creativity of action every day. Many people in our community see a need and meet it or find a way to help us feed, clothe or house those in need. #ThankYou

Shout out to First Church, Glastonbury and their amazing Youth Group who took time out of their Saturday to put their green thumbs to work. FCC partnered with Scott’s Orchard and Nursery for all the beautiful assorted flowers, mulch and gentle care shown to our flower beds located around 466 Main Street. Thank you to Karin for facilitating it all!

Another busy week here in the MACC Kitchen. We’re serving up a few summer classics this week with meals like burgers, hotdogs, BBQ pulled pork, house MACC & cheese, cheddar scallion corn bread, and smoky collard greens. All menu items that were requested from the folks that come for lunch. It’s nice receiving both feedback and suggestions from our community.
This week in the Emergency Food Pantry, I would like to give recognition to one of our volunteers. Steven Diaz is a long-time volunteer that has a talent for drawing. He uses these talents to make drawings that illustrate the different food groups in our refrigerator. These amazing illustrations can set the mood for the day’s work. Thank you Stephen!
Throughout the year, MACC is blessed with many volunteers that come to us for various reasons. One such volunteer is Drew Kehoe. Drew has helped us in all departments and has been someone we can depend on for whatever help we need. This week is Drew’s last week with us and we will miss having him here! Thank you Drew!

While many take basic needs for granted, many of our neighbors are struggling with the recent spike in costs for all things basic. Food, clothing, utilities, rent etc., continue to skyrocket and strain the stability of families everywhere. During times of struggle, remember that your little acts make a difference, none more than the acts of giving and showing kindness.
