On December 8th, 30 disadvantaged children identified by Santa Anita Family Services will get a special treat this holiday season. Through the assistance of the Rotary Club of Monrovia, the 30 students, ranging in age from 5 to 10 year old, will get the opportunity to shop for new clothing and shoes. Each child will be paired with a Monrovia High School Interact Club member or with an adult Rotarian to assist with their shopping and will be able to purchase $120 work of school appropriate clothing.
This is the first year that the Rotary Club of Monrovia has offered the Santa Clothes project to less fortunate children in the Monrovia area. According to Rotary President Julie Roybal, "just one look at the smile on the face of any young person, Interact student, or Rotarian will indicate that this event is a WIN-WIN for all concerned. We hope to be able to continue this project for many years to come."
