  • Meden Families Dig Deep

    Students and their families give generously to help others

    Meden students and their families have once again given generously to help others at this special time of year. Operation Food Bank was once again a tremendous success with many families donating items of dried and tin foods to help support the local food bank.

    Christmas time is such a special time for most people, but there are always those for whom Christmas is just another day when they worry about where the next meal is going to come from. Giving to others, particularly at this time of year, always feels rewarding and the donations received will go along way to help those in need.
