Main Street Fire: How to Help

Manchester is a tight knit town that works to take care of it’s own. Many of you heard about the fire on Main Street this past weekend that displaced individuals and families and affected several businesses.

MACC Charities has established a victims’ fund for those individuals who lost their homes due to the fire at 801 Main Street.

Checks should be made out to “MACC Charities” and in the memo line please write: “Main Street Fire” acknowledgement of your gift will be sent to you for tax purposes.

NO cash will be given out.  Needs will be assessed by the case management team of MACC in partnership with the Social Workers and staff of the Town of Manchester  Human Services Dept. & Senior Adult Services and assistance given through a voucher system (paying a vendor directly on behalf of the victim as needed and/or issuing gift cards for food, clothing, gas etc.)

If donors wish to designate their donation to a particular category of fire victims they need to make note of their preference in the memo line as follows:

  • Main Street Fire Victims – Residents
  • Main Street Fire Victims – Employees
  • Main Street Fire Victims – Businesses.
  • Donors may further designate to which business they wish their contribution to go.  CT Valley Coin  or Great Harvest Bread Co.

Donations can be mailed to:

MACC Charities
P.O. Box 3804
Manchester, CT 06045-3804

We are working on a way for you to give online currently and will update this site once that is live.
