MONROE, La (KNOE) For the 20th consecutive year, Denmon Engineering brings some holiday cheer to several underprivileged children this season.
The 2018 Denmon Engineering’s “Caring for Kids” event was held Wednesday, December 5th, 2018 at Berg Jones Lane Elementary School.
Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo dressed up as Santa Claus for photographs and the presentation of the gifts. An estimated total of 400 kids attending nine different elementary schools throughout Northeast Louisiana will receive special packages from this year’s effort.
Terry Denmon, president of Denmon Engineering, established the charity 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 April) 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.
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.
