The Gift of Education

January marks a new school year for Saint Monica’s!

It is so exciting to know that 10 girls will be returning or entering High School come January 2009. We now have the opportunity to raise funds to make this happen. Our goal is to raise $9000 by January 2nd. This will insure the girls one full year of school, plus room and board, books and all of their personal belongings they will need to take with them!

Time is of the essence and every dollar helps! Thank you so much for your help!!
