COVID Relief for Madison Families

COVID-19 is sending many people into economic crisis, and it is no different for many families in the Madison High School community. Access to resources varies widely across our student population, and some of our families have found themselves in new and difficult to navigate situations during this time. Families have been faced with issues ranging from the possibility of losing their homes to not having care for their children during the day to not being able to afford to pay their monthly bills and purchase groceries to cook healthy and sustainable meals for all of their young ones that now spend all day at home.
The Madison faculty and staff are working around the clock to support our families however we can, and with the help of amazing community partners, we are supporting our diverse student body with their diverse needs, but resources are running thin everywhere, and as the pandemic continues, needs are intensifying.
100% of funds from this campaign will go to support Madison High School students and families with basic needs like fresh fruits and vegetables and other necessary food, and emergency financial needs. Priority will be given to immigrant and refugee families and families who cannot access government aid funding. I teach English Language Development at Madison, and I will be working closely with administration and the Outreach Team to organize food and fund distribution. I will post updates here that include how many Madison families we are able to support with the funds.
