Beth Stafford

Executive Director/CEO

I believe in the cycle of good generating good.
I believe in people helping other people get back on their feet; in a community caring about its residents having access to the basic needs of food, clothing, and affordable housing; and in having the expectation that people who need help give back when they get back on their feet.

Shout out to Carol with Vervana, specialists in spices, infused oils, sauces, and pasta. This week, they gave MACC a fantastic donation of red lentil pasta, arrabbiata sauces, and artichoke risotto packaged in retail for our families to enjoy! As a part of the Manchester Women’s Club, Carol is always taking care of our families and meeting their emergency needs.

It’s beginning to look a lot like winter at MACC Charities! The decorations are coming out, and the need is greater than ever. Community Threads Thrift Shoppe needs all things winter. Warm clothing, winter coats, gloves, mittens, and warm boots. Help make the winter months bearable for those in need by donating your new or gently used winter clothes today!

Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager

Are you aware that nearly 1 in 500 Americans are homeless, mainly on the West Coast and in the Northeast, according to estimates in a 2021 study? One of the fastest forms of homelessness is in what is now called “Vehicle Residency.” Individuals, couples, and families live out of their vehicles as an alternative to the unattainable housing costs nationwide.
