Life Academy--Business of Life

Students of the Life Academy hosted the annual Holiday Sale in our new Life Academy building. Tables surrounded the Center with culinary creations, decorations and gifts for the family.

The students raised more than 30% of their annual goal to support the ongoing businesses in the Life Academy program. That was higher than any year in the past!

Other funds are raised through fall festivals, sales at our annual Miracle Makers Morning Breakfast and our Grandparents & Special Friends Day sale of roses.

We were delighted to have so many return customers this year and had a repeat surprise gift giver who touched, not only the students at Monarch, but others as well.

Last year, we had a donor purchase ‘all of the poinsettias left’ to be sent to the Hampton retirement home across the street from our campus.

The kids loaded up the bus and hand delivered the poinsettias to our elderly neighbors.

The transition from stranger to friend was instantaneous as the flowers passed from one hand to the other and the smiles lit up the faces of both student and senior.

What a heartwarming gift and reminder of the true spirit of our season of giving.
