  • Holiday presents for Monroe students:
    We’re in need of gifts for students in Pre-K - 6th grade!
    We need new, store-bought gifts in their original packaging in the $15 range. Needed items include remote control cars, transformers and robots, large dolls of color, art kits for older kids, arts and craft sets. The bigger the box, the more exciting it is for the kids to open!
