Dear MAIACA Patrons,

 

As we continue to deal with the effects of the pandemic, MAIACA is looking for ways to bring you quality programming that brings our community together and is relevant to our times.

We have put together a list of resources to help get through these tough times. They are grouped into the following sections:

  • Philanthropy for the Soul - How You  Can Help The Community

  • Entertainment to Feed Your Mind - Stay Positive & Connected, Keep Laughing & Moving

    • Do-It-Yourselves (DIYs)  to keep you smiling   and looking good

  • Indian Entertainment Brought to You -   Music,  Video, Book, TV Series Recommendations   &  "I for India"

We will be periodically updating this list, so check back regularly.

You can always email us at maiaca.inc@gmail.com with any of your thoughts and suggestions.

Stay positive and safe.
