C.J. DeCrescente to Keynote the MACSC Economic Impact Luncheon



As part of the 50th anniversary programming and celebration, MACSC is hosting an Economic Impact Luncheon on Thursday June 13th at Park Tavern to showcase real time impact MACSC has on the community. C.J. DeCrescente will address the importance of fostering partnerships between non-profits and the business community as a call to action for community leaders for their support in helping MACSC attain the $50,000 match challenge from Stewart’s Shops.

Megan Quillinan, MACSC Executive Director, stated “We are beyond honored and excited for this opportunity to hear Mr. DeCrescente offer his take on community involvement. He and his family have built a company on the values MACSC holds near and dear – partnerships, family and community. 50 years strong at MACSC – our story has just begun – we invite the community to help us write the next chapter.”

Last winter, Stewart’s Shops announced their support of the Mechanicville Area Community Services Center (MACSC) with a $50,000 match challenge in recognition of MACSC’s 50 years of serving the community. “Stewart’s and the Dake Family are proud to support MACSC and congratulate them on 50 years of meeting the changing needs of our communities. We look forward to watching them grow,” states Susan Dake, Stewart’s Foundation President.

Local businesses have been quick to respond. DeCrescente Distributing Company (DDC) set the bar high with a generous commitment of $10,000; Polyset Inc. followed suit with a $5,000 gift. Generous and early support also came in from GA Bove Fuels, Jack Byrne Ford and New Country Toyota, putting fundraising efforts at $32,000, needing to raise just $18,000 more. 

MACSC is a family neighborhood resource center located in downtown Mechanicville. Founded by local parents as a youth drop-in center fifty years ago, more than 6,000 area residents visit the center each year. Programs range from food pantry to childcare, domestic violence advocacy to Seniors Living Well, summer camp to afterschool clubs – there is something for everyone. MACSC serves the greater Mechanicville area primarily including Mechanicville, Stillwater, Halfmoon, Waterford, and Schaghticoke - services are not restricted by residency.  

In order to expand and strengthen programming, MACSC is in need of additional space. Focus will be on further development of safe places for youth, workforce development, and continued decrease in barriers to accessing services. MACSC plans to look for continued growth opportunities within city limits.
