Welcome to our weekly newsletter

The MACC Minute October 27, 2022.  We hope it will inspire you to get involved.

Beth Stafford

Executive Director/CEO

What are three important things to you? If food, clothing, and housing are on your list, I hope you will choose to make MACC Charities one of the top three charities you support. MACC is not an entitlement program but an emergency response to immediate needs. MACC’s mission is about Building Partnerships To Break Cycles Of Poverty In Our Community. 
#Kindness Wins, donate to MACC Charities

Shannon Baldassario

Assistant Executive Director

Attention Shoppers! This year’s Emergency of Hunger Food Drive’s set to kick off on November 12th & 13th. Do your shopping at Highland Park Market or Stop&Shop in Manchester, and remember to grab those extra items to donate to MACC’s Emergency Food Pantry for a family in need this holiday season. No time to shop; we accept gift cards too!

Community Kitchen Head Chef

Unfortunately, this donation had to be thrown away when left outside after hours. Please remember we cannot accept any donations that are brought onsite after staff leaves and are left outside in the elements. Without knowing the origin or safety of these items, we cannot accept them nor give them out to a community member who would otherwise enjoy them!

Phil Leggett

Pantry Manager

Our families are thankful for the fantastic donation we receive from the community. Beth Sholom B’nai Israel of Manchester observed the High Holidays with a High Holiday Food Drive that stocked our shelves with necessary food items. We thank them for their thoughtfulness and compassion that while they commemorated atonement and reflection, they shared with local families and spread kindness.

Patti Thurlow

Operations Manager

We are all seeing the prices of everything rise, and with that, we are seeing a greater need for affordable clothing. Community Threads Thrift Shoppe is proud to say that with your generous donations of winter clothing, we have been able to offer low or no-cost warm clothing to many individuals and their families for the coming winter season! #CommunityHelpingCommunity

Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager

As the seasons change, we try to put some smiles on some of our unsheltered individual’s faces with winter jackets, gloves, hats, scarves, socks, and hand warmers. After keeping them warm outside, we give them a hot meal from our Community Kitchen to warm up their insides. Sometimes it is just little things that can make the most profound difference.
