Donations Needed

Clothes Closet at First Baptist

The Youth at First Baptist Church of Monroe, 457 South Main, has started a clothes closet  with the desire to provide clothes and shoes to any needy families in Monroe. Donations are accepted from the community as well.
This ministry was made possible with the added space in the church due to the construction of our new family life center.
For more information, or to suggest a family that may benefit from the clothes closet, please call 513-539-8245 (answering machine at the church), 513-313-1293
(Tim Kellis) or 313-7210 (Patti Kellis).

Real Men (and Women) Wear Pink

Monroe's firefighters will be sporting pink t-shirts during the month of October for breast cancer awareness.
Breast cancer strikes both men and women, with women having a 1 in 8 chance of developing the cancer at some point over their lifetime.
The department will be selling bracelets and running a "fill the boot" campaign at home football games on October 2nd and 9th, and at the Trader's World and Treasure Isle flea markets. Also, look for donation cans at area businesses.
The firefighters union is also accepting donations by mail. Please send a check to:
