For the past six years Marco, through holding office in the Forest Park South Avondale Business Association, has organized a summer series of free family movies - Movies at Avondale Park. Thousands have enjoyed these movies under the stars every summer. Driven by the success of the movies, Marco also arranged the long overdue return to Avondale Park of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra for free spring concerts. Follow Movies at Avondale Park on Facebook to stay informed about the summer movies.
In collaboration with his Leadership Birmingham class, Maco created an organization with the mission of solving the City of Birmingham's constant problem of serving meals to the homeless who come in out of the cold during Boutwell Auditorium Warming Station openings. Heart to Table was created to bring together a coaltion of locally-owned restaurants and local community partners to deliver hot, nutritious meals each time the city opens the warming station. This will be the third year of the program, and already thousands of meals have been served to those in need.
