News from our Food Pantry
We are grateful for those who make the holiday season memorable at MACC with volunteering during extended holiday hours, packing baskets, and donating to our Emergency Food pantry. We are still working to reach our gift card goal of $10,000 to assist the community we serve this Christmas. Donate $25.00 gift cards so we can bless a family in need.
Thankful is defined as pleased and relieved, which sums up my feelings as a nonprofit leader, during Thanksgiving 2020.
I am both pleased and relieved to witness our community’s response to the devastation brought on by COVID 19. Overwhelming generosity has given MACC the resources to respond to the emergency needs brought on by food insecurity, illness and unemployment.
Director of Services
This Thanksgiving, I’m reflecting on how blessed MACC and staff have been this year. From all of our volunteers to donors who continue to support us with our mission, our gratitude turns what we have into enough. Sending warm heartfelt wishes to our community, may this week of Thanksgiving be blessed with joy, love, happiness, good food and good times!
