On October 17th, Heads of Community Service at Madeira, Faith Slaughter and Carson Peters, coordinated a weekend activity with the Anime Club and Master Chef Clubs to volunteer at Capital Area Food Bank. Twelve students packaged food that will support nearly 100 families in the DC area. These students dedicated their weekend to giving back to the local community.
