Madison Country Day School (MCDS) will be collecting nonperishable food items and nonfood donations in the Share Your Holidays Food Drive to benefit the Community Action Coalition of South Central Wisconsin. The goal of the food drive is to sustain the needs of families through the winter months and beyond, and the collection will last through December 3rd.
Last year, the CAC and Second Harvest Food Bank provided 12.2 million meals to those facing hunger. In 2014, the Share Your Holidays School Food Drive raised 56,450 meals.
Madison Country Day School families contributed 2,187 meals toward that total, helping families in our community and placing us on the Share Your Holidays Honor Roll.
Benjamin Hebebrand, head of school, explains that the food drive event is a popular cause with the MCDS community. “It’s a nice representation of our character education program here at MCDS,” stated Hebebrand. “Our strong participation each year is a wonderful reflection of our caring and supportive community.”
