Madison Qualle, a junior at Wayzata High School, began her relationship with Interfaith Outreach in seventh grade while working toward the Girl Scout Silver Award. Her troop made baskets filled with essential items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, cards, soap and blankets. This experience motivated Madison to volunteer with our “Food to You” program, where she shopped for food for home-bound seniors. Around the holidays, Madison’s troop also made tie blankets and cards for all the seniors in the program. “It was fun to do something a little extra for them and many seniors said it was a happy surprise,” she said.
Madison values the positivity at Interfaith Outreach. She currently cashiers at Resale Select in addition to the Food to You program. She encourages other students to be part of Interfaith Outreach. “It’s really fun to volunteer and there are many different opportunities to get involved in like the Food Shelf, Resale Select and working with kids. There is something for everyone! Plus, you can do it with your friends and it makes you feel really good.”
In addition to volunteering, Madison enjoys baking, art and being outside. Her favorite school subjects are science and math. Thanks for your commitment, Madison. We look forward to seeing you soon!
