Welcome to our weekly newsletter

The MACC Minute September 1, 2022.  We hope it will inspire you to get involved.

Beth Stafford

Executive Director/CEO

MACC purposely places “Community” as its prefix for each program. Why? To give credit to “who” it is for and for “whom” it supports. Anyone may need the services of the community emergency food pantry, kitchen, thrift shoppe, or outreach and emergency services; if not personally, chances are, you will know someone who does. Community helping Community is MACC Charities.
#Kindness Wins, donate to MACC Charities

Shannon Baldassario

Assistant Executive Director

First and best – always go to our guests! This is our motto and we hope it will encourage you to ask yourself before you visit to donate, “Is this something I would be willing to share with someone I love?” This is the same measure we use before offering it to those we care about. Careful donating blesses everyone.

Chef Ferdinand Cruz

Community Kitchen Head Chef

We work hard to give our guests safe and hearty food with the help of your generous donations, but there are some items that we can’t accept. These Items include, food that is expired, or have packaging that is compromised or temperature sensitive foods that can’t be accounted for. Help us help our guests with your donations.

Phil Leggett

Pantry Manager

We receive many generous donations every week. When compiling your donation, please be mindful of expiration dates or damaged packaging. If food donations are past the labelled expiration date or the packaging is marred, we are unable to offer them to our MACC families. We strive to provide our families with safe and healthful items that anyone would comfortably use.

Patti Thurlow

Operations Manager

Thinking of donating to the Community Threads Thrift Store? When donating your gently used clothing and other household items, please remember that there are certain items we cannot accept. These items include electronics, furniture, any ripped, torn, stained or painted clothing, and used undergarments (including socks). Our thrift store depends on your quality donations. Thank you for helping our community.

Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager

When we put out requests for clothes to give to those in need, we don’t give out anything that we ourselves wouldn’t wear. The individuals we serve are no different than you or I, which is why we ask for new or gently used items. If the condition is why you’re donating it, then please understand we can’t use it.
Thank you, to all our volunteers and generous donators that offer us their time and gifts with the needs of MACC and intern, the needs of the families and individuals we serve, in mind.
