Thank you for the many, many donations that have been made to the Madison Pantry and Outreach efforts!
We have supported our Madison families who need assistance since January 2018 though our Pantry. Thank you for your incredible support and generosity! Direct food distribution to our students and their families began again on Monday, September 21st after a summer program focused on grocery card distribution due to COVID-19 precautions. If you are able, please consider ordering something for those in need from our Amazon wishlist.
We are also kicking off our annual Giving Tree winter clothing drive! Please consider signing up for one of the clothing donations to support Madison students in need of winter clothing. Our students appreciate any kind of welcoming note in the package and each entry has a specific story about the student who has requested the donation. Donations may be brought to the Giving Tree donation bin outside of Door 1 of Madison High School starting November 4th through December 18th. Any questions can be directed to Madison HS teacher, Ms Slingerland, who deserves our appreciation of her time and energy that went into creating this list and sharing our students’ stories. And, thank you, as always, for the generosity and warmth the Madison community demonstrates towards our students!
Another way to support our Madison students and their families is donating to our Madison Pantry below. We are a 501c3 and the funds are most flexible to address the needs of our families in this ever-changing situation.
We also continue to work very closely with the Vienna Student Food Initiative, a partnership with BELONG!, Christ Church Vienna, First Baptist Church of Vienna, Vienna Presbyterian Church, Vienna Baptist Church, and Madison PTSA in direct coordination with the administration and social workers at schools in the Madison High School Pyramid.
Cunningham Park ES in Vienna is a Grab and Go location and our Madison students and families can receive food at that location as well. Afternoon snack and supper meals are available for pick up between 8:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The food is FREE for anyone 18 and younger and $2 for adults over 18. Any child qualifies. Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) buses are delivering grab and go meals along some bus routes. School buses will stop at designated intersections to deliver these meals. FCPS students are welcome to come to any of the sites or bus route stops to pick up a meal during these time periods.
