Grateful for Thanks

Thanks for your feedback!

MAAC just wrapped up our first (in recent years) semiannual customer service survey week. Thank you to our agencies and community partners for all your valuable input and for taking the time to let us know how we’re doing. We welcome the constructive thoughts and are grateful for the overwhelming thanks we received.

MAAC is thankful for you and your agency and all the hard work you do for our community. We are happy to call you friends and partners.

Because it’s Thanksgiving week…

Keeping in the theme of the season, the MAAC staff would like to share some of the things we are thankful for:

Natasha is thankful for the generosity of friends and family helping her paint and move into her new home!

Howie is thankful for reStart’s boldness in renovating not just their emergency shelter facility, but their whole programming model.  He thinks the changes are not only great for their clients and for reStart, but for the whole community.

Linda is thankful for laughter, memories and chocolate pecan pie – lots of pie.

Stephanie is thankful for everything in her life that she’s fortunate to have… Family, her amazing friends, and opportunities she’s been able to take advantage of.

Glory is thankful there are after-school programs available where our kids can learn, have fun, and stay safe!

Shelly is thankful for mornings when her kids wake up happy and they can find everyone’s shoes and there is a cup of coffee for the road.

I’m (Megan) thankful for patience, compassion, and my friends who are really more like a family. And mashed potatoes with lots of butter.

Our fearless leader, John, is thankful for the fact that he loves his job, that what we do helps the community, and that he works with great people. And for covered parking.

Jill has created one of her infamous drawings to express her thoughts on being thankful for technology:


There are so many ways to be thankful and things to be thankful for…

As we embark on this holiday season, let the intention be to remember this for ourselves and others as we continue to help in whatever ways we do… however that looks to you.

Happy Turkey Day and Holidays ahead!
