Once your nominee has been selected, their family will be invited to join us on Saturday, December 5, 2020 for our MACC Christmas event. During this pandemic-conscious event, we will be offering fun activities that allow for social distancing and adherence to all CDC guidelines, while ensuring these children in need have a memorable experience. This will include a to-go holiday treat, a to-go holiday craft, hot chocolate and hot apple cider, holiday photos, and a 12 shops of Christmas traveling passport with fun treats and the opportunity to win prizes! All nominees will leave with their presents ready to be put under their tree for Christmas morning, as well as a special swag bag for parents offering specials and discounts from the surrounding shops.

We want to thank you again for considering nominees for this event and teaming up with us to give some Frederick Families a better Christmas than they would have expected. With you we know we can make this event even more successful than last year!

The inspiration behind MACC Christmas comes from Brandi Rashidian, Clinic Director and Chief People Officer.

"When I was 7 years old my mother was placed in Hospice at the young age of 28. As Christmas drew near, we were all faced with the knowledge that that would most likely be her last Christmas with our family. Unfortunately, due to the burden of unpaid medical bills that were piling up, and my father’s inability to find a good paying job with insurance to keep us afloat, our family was struggling just to live day-to-day, let alone have any sort of traditional Christmas. Although my brother and I were expecting to wake up to a pretty bare tree on Christmas morning, we were met with complete surprise. Through teary eyes we walked into our living room to find more gifts that we could ever have imagined possible. What I did not know at the time was that a special group of people cared enough to bless our family with an unbelievable last Christmas with my mom. That following July we said our final goodbyes to her. It was the generosity of that incredible group of people which made that last Christmas with my mom even more special."
