Beth Stafford

Executive Director/CEO

Our Community is blessed.
Representatives of all faiths gathered at Beth Sholom B’nai Israel this week to thank the Lord for our town’s provision, leadership, and vision to care for its poor, vulnerable, and abused. This beloved annual tradition gives our community pause on the eve of the holiday season to observe what matters most; our fellowship with each other.

Shannon Baldassario

Assistant Executive Director

Happy Thanksgiving from us at MACC! What a blessed year it’s been for all of our guests served, volunteers, and donors who continue to support us in our mission of building partnerships to break cycles of poverty. Sending warm heartfelt wishes to our community, may this week of Thanksgiving be blessed with joy, love, happiness, good food, and good times!

Chef Ferdinand Cruz

Community Kitchen Head Chef

Thank you to Mr. Healy and the students from the Manchester Transitional Center work group for being generous enough to donate these flowers and assorted plants. Now we can offer these unique beauties to our community. Just because the air is bitter and cold doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy pretty flowers with thoughts of warmer and brighter days to come!

Chef Ferdinand, MACC Community Kitchen

Phil Leggett

Pantry Manager

The holiday season brings so many thoughtful donations.
With these donations comes a need for more helping hands. During our Emergency of Hunger Food Drive, UConn students, ECHN employees, the Ambulance Service of Manchester, and the Manchester Police Explorers donated time and energy to gather and process generous donations. Thank you to all our volunteers that helped make it successful.

Patti Thurlow

Operations Manager

It’s the partnerships that make it ALL worth It! Shout out to CJ’s Pizza & Giant Grinder, Randy’s Wooster Street Pizza, and Andi’s Pizzeria in town for their support in providing lunch time pizzas to the many volunteers with ASM and the Manchester Police Explores. Thank you to our delivery volunteers; Jill Zatkowski as well as Dick & Jane Thompson.

Timothy Bohr

Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager

Sometimes the stars align, and good things happen quickly. Recently we had the pleasure of interacting with a well-known town resident in need of emergency assistance. Within literally minutes, MACC was able to provide both clinical and legal aid to pave the path to wellness for our appreciative new friend. Manchester agencies are second to none when we work together.
