Leslie loves Care to Learn. When asked one of her most impactful memories, she shared, “We were able to help a student that we realized was hearing impaired. She had hearing aids when she was young, but had outgrown them and they would not stay in her ears. She hadn’t said anything, so we did not realize that she had been reading lips for 4 years because they were not able to afford the devices that she needed to hear.”

Care to Learn - Monett was recently able to provide clothing to a 1st grade boy who moved in from another country who only had a pair of 2T toddler pjs and torn shoes to his name. They moved to America with nothing. Thank you for supporting this family and other Monett families so that students can focus on learning!
