Thanks to our generous community and our dedicated volunteers for helping ALL of Monroe’s children get ready for school! Thanks to you, we distributed 542 backpacks full of new supplies! Have a great school year, kids!
We will be handing out backpacks and school supplies to students who live within the Monroe School District during our regular operating hours from 8/19 through 8/30. Hours are M, W, and F 9:00-11:30 am and M 6:00-7:00 pm. Please bring picture ID, a current piece of mail showing you live within the Monroe School District, and birth date verification for the children who will be receiving backpacks.
