Welcome to the our weekly newsletter

The MACC Minute for November 19, 2020.  We hope it will inspire you to get involved.

News from our Food Pantry  

Think about what it would be like to not have the things you need every day to keep your family healthy and happy. This week the Pantry finds itself low on baby wipes, pull-ups size 3T-4T, 4T-5T, and toiletries including shampoo, body wash, razors, toothpaste, and all feminine products. Consider donating to ease the worry of some of our families. 

Beth Stafford

Executive Director/CEO

Buy one, Give one.  Many grocery stores have a buy one get one promotion. Please consider doing what a lot of our volunteers and donors do, place a box in your home and put the “get one” in it, when your box is full, drop it off to the Emergency Food Pantry.

Chef MACC Kitchen

I remember when life was good back in 2019! (Ha)
A few volunteers and I were preparing lunch here at the MACC kitchen. We threw together this meatloaf for the community. It consisted of a few left-over items, smoked Gouda cheese, bacon, butternut squash and sage. It came out delish! The Best recipes are when not following an actual recipe!

Operations Manager

Community Threads Thrift Store is gearing up for the Christmas Season!! MACC’s volunteers are quickly sorting through the donations to make sure that we put the best products out for our customers, as well as decorating to make the season as festive and cheerful as they can! Stop in and do your holiday Shopping! Hours are 10am -2pm Monday –Saturday!



Mark Nadeau

Outreach Case Worker

You can find our Outreach Team engaging with everyone during lunch each day. Why do we engage? Why is it important? Primarily because everyone has a story to tell about their struggles and addictions. We listen. From these interactions, we can direct you to resources and services that will best serve your needs. We look forward to speaking with you!




Bistro Chef

Want a bite? The secret to our number one seller, “The Cuban”, is the love that goes into each sandwich we make. We will slow roast the pork, make the pickles, hand cut the fries and put it all in a convenient disposable container. Order it, pay for it and let us know your preference of carry out or curbside.
