Monticello Women of Today members are helping with Kids Kitchen from June 11 through August 13 to benefit Monticello school district area families. The Monticello Foodshelf provides a variety of food items to be distributed this summer to families in the community. About 230-250 kids are served each week! Thanks to all our volunteers. This is another example of the Monticello community pulling together to help out.
Do you know what happens when a lot of chapters come together across the state and volunteer their time and donate money to great causes?! We make an IMPACT!
