MONROE - Since it first embraced the Christmas Stocking program in 1951, the Monroe Woman's Club has found support for it from volunteers and the donations of individuals, community groups and businesses. Donations provide the club with the funds and goods to distribute holiday food boxes to hundreds of families and elderly and to provide clothes, toys and shoes or boots to children in need in the Monroe school district. This year, more than 30 businesses, including banks and manufacturers across Monroe, have made room for toys dropped off for the Christmas Stocking.
