Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- The Monroe Jaycees makes it possible for 131 children to buy gifts for Christmas.

The children are students from Ouachita Parish and Monroe City schools. They were recommended by their school principals as being those that were in the most need of toys this Christmas.

Students that attended were given 75 dollars to spend on toys of their choice at Wal-Mart.

This is the 48th year for the Jaycees to team up with Wal-Mart and give kids of Ouachita Parish a special Christmas.

After all the kids purchased their toys the Jaycees had a bill of more than 9 thousand dollars.

"It's money well spent," Ashley White vice president of the Jaycees said.
