Children’s Christmas Shopping Tour
Sunday, December 16
What is the Christmas Shopping Tour?
The Monroe Jaycees solicit all Ouachita Parish elementary schools (Ouachita Parish Schools, Monroe City Schools, and privately funded) for a minimum of 5 underprivileged children to be eligible for the Christmas Shopping Tour. The children who choose to accept the Monroe Jaycees invitation (the exact number is based on the total fund availability) are then given $75.00 to spend on anything they choose in the Monroe, LA Wal-Mart Super Center. Each child has a volunteer adult escort to assist in their shopping spree.
How can YOU Help?
Ø You can sponsor a child for $75.00 (or any dollar amount). Your donation will allow the Monroe Jaycees to select additional needy children submitted by the area elementary schools who will then enjoy a day of pure joy.
Ø You can donate your time and volunteer to help those children selected navigate through the Monroe Wal-Mart Super Center for “that perfect something” they want to treat themselves to.
Ø You can do BOTH! If it would brighten your day to donate money AND then assist that child in spending that donation on the Christmas gift they’ve longed for, YOU CAN!!!
*Volunteers: Please be in the Monroe Wal-Mart Garden Center at 6AM. If you're in a group, you're welcome to wear your group's t-shirts.
