This is the ninth year in a row MAG has partnered with the Anne Arundel County Food and Resource Bank and Anne Arundel County Public Schools for the campaign. USNA donated over 80,000 pounds of food last year and the midshipmen hope to meet or exceed that goal this year.
MAG members will participate in numerous local volunteer and community service programs throughout the upcoming spring semester. During the previous academic year, they logged over 25,000 hours participating in community service projects locally and throughout the country.
MAG was established in 1992 as a community relations program for and by the Brigade of Midshipmen and currently offers a variety of educational, environmental and social service volunteer projects in coordination with community partners from the Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington D.C. areas, as well as regional and national partners. MAG prepares midshipmen for future service by encouraging peer leadership, teamwork, character development, morale, selflessness and goodwill towards others.
