As we mark one year since the COVID-19 pandemic first hit Washington state, the Madison PTSA remains committed to supporting Madison students and their families, especially those most urgently in need.
Your tax-deductible donation to the Funds for Families Drive will allow the PTSA to continue to provide our families assistance with groceries, school supplies and other basic items. The contributions we have received over the past several months have made a big impact on our families’ lives.
Thank you for sharing our commitment to the Madison community, and for giving what you can to this effort. We are better together!
Katy Walum, President Madison Middle School PTS
A Note From The Counselors:
Families have been incredibly grateful. Many have said it helps because they don’t have to choose between food or bills. This is making a huge difference and relieving a small bit of stress in a hugely stressful time.
If you are a family in need please contact your grade level counselor for assistance.
“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”
Due to present circumstance, COVID-19, the Raise the Paddle fundraiser for Madison Middle School PTSA has been postponed. Thank you for supporting our school and community! We hope to see you in person then!

Dear Madison Community, The response to your Direct Drive support for Madison families in need has been overwhelming. We are so grateful to those of you who have contributed so far. From Madison staff distributing grocery assistance and other items to our families: The families I’ve had direct contact with . . . were near tears or noticeably emotional about how appreciative they were; they were in a position to choose bills before groceries. Food has been the biggest concern for keeping some type of normalcy, and with kids home, food goes much faster. For a couple of families, this is the first time they’ve had to ask for support like this, and they were very humbled and grateful for the support. Families have been incredibly grateful. Many have said it helps because they don’t have to choose between food or bills. This is making a huge difference and relieving a small bit of stress in a hugely stressful time.We had a mom that had tears of thanks; she had been trying to decide if she should pay rent or put food on the table for her family. With each day that passes under the COVID-19 restrictions, the number of Madison families requesting assistance has grown. We need everyone’s continued support to help more of our families put food on the table and provide for basic needs as they struggle to navigate this crisis. Please give as generously as you can to take care of our Madison community by clicking the blue bar/button link to the right that says Donate to the Direct Drive Fund. This should take you to the PayPal page.
Thank you, Katy Walum, PresidentMadison Middle School PTSA
