Annual Donations

We appreciate all of you who reach out in love and support of our school and families.  Everyday, children walk into Monmouth Day Care Center and are embraced with love and compassion.  They are given the opportunity to become the masters of their own learning.  MDCC is vital to the community we serve.  Early childhood education is the ground level upon which learning is built.  Your support means so much to the many children and families we serve.

The number one way that we can address these long-term challenges of poverty, or education, is to invest in early childhood education

Food pantry donations

Over 7 years ago, staff recognized a child coming into their class always hungry.  When breakfast and lunch were served, this child ate as though the food was going to be taken away from him.  Upon further exploration, MDCC Staff realized the family did not have enough money to provide food on the table.  The proud father would not accept our help when he was approached.  Thus, the idea of a Food Pantry was born. 

Our food pantry has opened our eyes to the needs of our families and the community at large.  While some of our families “shop” weekly at the pantry, other families provide to the pantry.  Our pantry is available to anyone who walks through our doors.  This includes visitors, extended family members, visitors of the VNA’s WIC Program, and many more.

We welcome food donations and appreciate the generosity of our community.  We ask that all food be non-perishable and that it is unopened or expired.  Click here to view our recommended list of items.
