Monarch School Donation

Hygiene Kits – with shampoo, body wash and toothpastes, etc were the request of the Monarch School this year.  

Our Club went right to work!   180 hygiene kits were collected from our members and thanks to our contact, Anita Lindberg were distributed to the Monarch School in downtown San Diego. Sarah, our contact at the school,  was amazed at our club’s generosity and thanks all of us on behalf of the students and their families.

Thank you to all of our members!
