TMA Students Giving Back to the Community

Last Wednesday and Thursday, while the rest of the school was either taking the DC CAS, practice exams, or preparing for graduation, the majority of 11th graders participated in community service projects at Martha’s Table, Bright Beginnings, Food & Friends, Bread for the City, Behrend Bulders at the DC-Jewish Community Center, Metro Teen Aids, and the Wright House. Students helped out these organizations in many ways from playing with toddlers and preschoolers, to packing grocery bags for people with life-challenging illnesses to making and serving peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the homeless. Students really enjoyed volunteering and getting to learn more about the challenges that many people across DC face every day. Thanks to all of the organizations who hosted our students!
