Military support is a key component to MACCLID. Building relationships with military personnel and community patrons creates a significant bond. We honor our troops by partnering with local bases to ensure that our servicemen and women are recognized for their dedication to ensuring rights & freedoms.
Having adequate health services is vital to a community. Through our Community Health Initiative, we strive to provide health services and resources in underserved communities to ensure better health outcomes.
Businesses are a key structure in the economics of a community. Large corporations and small businesses enhance economic growth in the community. MACCLID supports and partners with local business to encourage growth in the communities in which these businesses operate.
Education and literacy are extremely important because it is the vehicle that allows for a community to grow it next generation.
