I’d like to acknowledge and thank Performance Food Group for the partnership we share here at MACC. Our food rep, Steve always goes above and beyond the call of duty for us. Also a HUGE shout out to PFG’s delivery driver Juan. His hard work doesn’t go unnoticed. He’s timely, efficient and has become part of the MACC family!

Raise your hand if you’re sure… you applied your deodorant today!! Spring is right around the corner and Outreach is looking for men and women’s deodorant, wash wipes, body wash, and laundry detergent. Each week we meet with those we serve for basic hygiene showers. Guests are provided with everything they need to wash/dry a load of clothes too.
