February 2, 2023.
We hope it will inspire you to get involved.
Almost 300 people gathered to celebrate MACC’s 50th Anniversary. Our staff works with many volunteers each day to feed, clothe and shelter our neighbors in need. However, it is hard to see the army it takes to support our work, but they got to see that on January 19th. More importantly, they enjoyed the smiles, stories, warm hugs, and the sound of thunderous applause for them and their work. Thank you to all of our community that came together to celebrate MACC. I could not have asked for more.

Meet Linda Roy! She volunteers at the Community Kitchen on Mondays to assist in preparing meals and picks-up food rescue from BJ’s Wholesale Club. Whether we get a large or small donation, we receive all sorts of goodies like muffins, cakes, pies, cupcakes, pastries, donuts, sliced bread, and dinner rolls. Thank you, Linda, for all your efforts.
It takes many hands to accomplish the day-to-day tasks necessary to operate the MACC Food Pantry. On any given Friday, we organize and plan for many essential tasks, including deep cleaning and sanitizing, stocking shelves, shopping and packing grocery bags, and calling to make appointments for the week ahead. All the while, we enjoy each other’s company, so blessed with the opportunity to help our community.
If you have ever visited Community Threads Thrift Shoppe, you know our wide variety of clothing. We find different clothing goes faster at different times of the year, but we always seem to need jeans! We are especially low on men’s jeans! If you have any gently used or brand new jeans that you would like to donate, WE CAN USE THEM! Please donate them today so we can keep our racks stocked with good men’s jeans!
