Welcome to our weekly newsletter
The MACC Minute October 13, 2022. We hope it will inspire you to get involved.
Like it or not, things change. An expected change is time falling back. An unexpected change is the COVID event. Regardless of the cause, change is never easy, but we all must deal with it. Every change brings learning and builds experience, so MACC embraces and adjusts to change. Some of our most vital programs have resulted from challenging transitions.

It’s fall! As the season begins to change, so does our focus on serving the community. Clothes in Community Threads Thrift Shoppe are warm; the Community Kitchen seeks soups, stews, and chili recipes. Community Outreach & Emergency Services is preparing its winter resources, and our Community Emergency Food Pantry is ready for our 14th Annual Emergency of Hunger Food Drive.

I want to take a moment to acknowledge one of our student volunteers. Amalia has just finished her requirements for the Coventry Public Schools 18 – 21 Program. Working with her these last few years has been a genuine pleasure. Thank you, Amilia, for all your hard work and for reminding me that my food is the “worst” food ever!
We are fortunate to have many caring and generous folks drop donations off at MACC’s Emergency Food Pantry at 460 Main St., Manchester. One question often asked is, “What are your greatest needs?” Our needs list includes mayonnaise, ketchup, rice, baby wipes, toothpaste, beef stew, corn, peas, cake, and brownie mixes. Our families greatly appreciate donations of these much-needed items.
3 DAYS LEFT!!
