Monroe Elementary Partnership
Congregation Temple Israel has partnered with Monroe Elementary School, located in South St. Louis. Monroe has 250+ students ranging from ages 3-12; all of whom are living in poverty, and nearly half of whom experience home insecurity. Our goal is to support them in a number of ways to forge long-lasting relationships, and we need your help. We are, with our liaison from the St. Louis Public School District, starting to build an army of people who can share reassuring words and encouraging smiles, and who can sit with a child and remind them that they have potential, and that they are worthy of attention and care.
Support students and their families this school year and holiday season with a donation
This year, we are raising funds so that families can receive gift cards to purchase their child/children a holiday gift. We are also asking for funds to support the school's needs such as cleaning supplies and school snacks.
