Madison High School and the PTSA are proud to partner in supporting our students and families who are food insecure.  The Madison Pantry and Outreach team distributes food weekly to these students and their families.  We are incredibly grateful to Rustic Love Vienna for their incredibly generous donation!  We will be able to provide food, hygiene items and cleaning supplies to our students and their families throughout the summer!


And, as we did last year, we have organized an Adopt a Senior program for some of our seniors who need additional support and encouragement in working towards graduation. Thank you to all that have already reached out to support this important effort.  If you are interested in supporting this program, please contact me at president@jmhsptsa.org or beth.b.eachus@gmail.com.

Thank you for supporting our Madison community!
