Reaching out to those in need across the globe and locally is what we are called to do. At Buckingham Congregational we travel to Boston to feed those in need, collect for One Great Hour of Sharing which is a Christian effort to emp ower, provide water, supply food, and give relief from disasters. We also support the local food bank through the Manchester Area Conference of Churches (MACC). Come visit us to see what other outreach opportunities are available!
Starting in January 2021, Buckingham has also been doing a monthly Drive By Drop Off event where people can drop off donations for MACC and Carol's Closet in a socially distanced, contact free manner.
Mission & Outreach
MACC Food Pantry
Throughout the ongoing pandemic, there will remain an urgent need for monetary donations and dry goods for the Food Pantry. The Pantry organizer, Shannon, is requesting monetary gifts as it allows MACC to purchase what they need in bulk, along with eggs, milk and other perishables to supplement dry goods. Please consider making a monetary donation if you are able. Make checks payable to Buckingham Church with MACC in the memo area and mail to the church.
If you would like to donate dry goods, contact Andre Dumas, 860-748-1951 and he will arrange a time to pick them up from your home.
MACC's Emergency Food Pantry is in continuous need of the following items (perishables to be purchased with monetary donations).
When you choose to donate to MACC it fills a real need in our community!
