MONROE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - For the fourteenth consecutive year Denmon Engineering is bringing some holiday cheer to a number of underprivileged children this season.

The 2012 "Denmon Caring For Kids" event will kickoff at 1:00 pm Tuesday, December 4, at Lincoln Elementary School, at 4200 Elm Street in Monroe. Mayor Jamie Mayo will be playing the role of Santa Claus for photographs and presentation of the gifts. A total of 450 kids attending twelve different elementary schools throughout Northeast Louisiana will receive special packages from this years efforts.

Terry Denmon, president of Denmon Engineering, established the charity in an effort to give something back to the local community. The charity evolved from Denmon's desire to provide a charity whose greatest impact was on local children. In working with area schools, Denmon Engineering determined that an area of great need applied to the school uniform policy. Many low-income families are unable to provide the required uniforms for their children.

The holiday giving works in conjunction with the annual Denmon Engineering Golf Tournament (held in May) which raises funds for the event. The funds raised at the golf tournament are used to supply underprivileged children with school uniforms as well as a toy package for Christmas.

This year's golf tournament raised $25,000, all of which went directly to the charity. Thanks to the added support of the community, Denmon Engineering was able to adopt 450 children this year.

If you are interested in getting involved with the "Caring for Kids" charity, Denmon Engineering welcomes the support of the community. For more information, contact Ruby James at (318) 388-1422. The more businesses and individuals who offer their support, the more children the "Caring for Kids" charity will be able to adopt each year.
