The MACC Minute October 20, 2022.  We hope it will inspire you to get involved.

Beth Stafford

Executive Director/CEO

MACC Charities is the right size and is in the right place for the right reason. MACC helps remove barriers to food insecurity and other basic emergency needs that threaten the well-being of people in the greater Manchester area. The best way to “grow” MACC is to emulate its work in other communities, building partnerships to break cycles of poverty.

Shannon Baldassario

Assistant Executive Director

Remember to make an appointment with yourself. It’s important to remember that self-care is a priority and a necessary part of our world. We need to take the advice we give others, as you cannot pour from an empty cup. It’s permitting yourself to take a moment and reset. The most important relationship is the one you have with yourself.

Chef Ferdinand Cruz

Community Kitchen Head Chef

This past Tuesday, we received an unexpected donation from First Church of Glastonbury. They donated the remaining ingredients from their baked potato booth at the Glastonbury Apple Harvest & Music Festival. The potatoes and other items will be a great treat for our community and daily lunch guests. Thank you, First Church of Glastonbury, for this thoughtful and yummy donation!

The American Legion Riders, Chapter 102 of Manchester, recently provided MACC with 40 birthday cake kits for our families’ children. The American Legion Riders believe in helping those in need in our community just as we do. Thank you for putting these words into action. Our kids will now have all the supplies they need to celebrate their special day.

Timothy Bohr

Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager

Why I do what I do is simple. My job allows me to get up each day, knowing I will positively impact someone’s day and future. Whether it’s doing outreach, visiting the unsheltered in our community to help them find a brighter path, or assisting those struggling with daily hardships, There isn’t a better feeling than helping those in need.
