Breakfast is served!!!  I had the honor of serving my family a delicious meal and served it on MACC’s Giving Plate this past week. It was a conversation starter that lasted the entire meal. Here is snapshot #1 of MACC’s Traveling Giving Plate. Help us reach our goal of 50 meals during MACC’s 50th Anniversary throughout 2023. Be sure to snap a picture of your meal and share it on social media tagging MACC Charities. #MACCis50

Meet Ethan Gomez. 

Ethan has joined us from MCC to volunteer in the kitchen. It was nice exchanging stories and answering his questions. It brought me back to my first year of cooking. I remember the challenges, failures, successes, and blessings from when I started 23 years ago. Good luck, Ethan. I look forward to working with you again!

Pantry Manager

The Community Emergency Food Pantry meets more than just the food needs of our families. Along with the generous food donations we receive to distribute to our families, we also need and accept toiletries, cleaning items, and paper products. Body wash, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, razors, feminine supplies, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other personal items are greatly appreciated.

Today’s kids are our future volunteers!

Do you have a son or daughter who needs Community Service for school or would like to volunteer and learn how they can help others? By volunteering, kids gain the opportunity to see the challenges that people in our community face and take part in our commitment to ending cycles of poverty! Let MACC teach them how to give a hand up and become part of meaningful change in our community!

Shout out to Swiss Cleaners and Jessica Mattson, Brand, Marketing & Retail Manager, for donating part of our purchase request and partnering with us to provide prepaid reloadable laundry cards to assist our shelter guests. Our working shelter clients cannot always utilize our laundry machines at MACC due to their schedules, and these cards allow them to visit the local Swiss Cleaners on East Middle Turnpike at their convenience. One step closer to becoming self-sustained and independent with help from a dedicated and generous Manchester business. Thank you!
