City Employees to Donate over 800 items, including: Food, Bedding, and Household Items to local Ronald McDonald House
February City Employee Benevolent Act
Mayor Jamie Mayo is pleased to announce City of Monroe employees will be making a special donation of food, bedding and household supplies to the Ronald McDonald house, located at 200 South 3rd Street in Monroe, LA, at 10 am Wednesday, February 26. The media is invited.
This effort is our February City Employees Community Benevolent Act. Led by City Engineer Kim Golden and her staff, and with the support of personnel from every city department, our employees used their personal funds to purchase over 800 hundred items including bottles of detergent, paper towels, mattress covers, sheet sets, towel sets, blankets and canned goods.
Mayor Mayo says, “Our employees continue to step up and go above and beyond the call of duty to show their unselfish concern for the well-being of others. The Ronald McDonald House does a wonderful job providing free lodging to families whose children are in the area for medical treatment. We are Monroe Proud to do our part to help Georgia Street and the outstanding men and women at the RMH give comfort and care to these families during difficult times.”
