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.
Stay positive and safe.
