Pinecrest Elementary School – Immokalee
Located in one of the poorest communities in Collier County, this school provides an excellent education to its students through the generosity of its supporters. Twice each school year, the Women of St. Monica’s provides a lovely luncheon for the teachers and staff. They have no PTA/PTO to provide this kind of support. Additionally, the congregation of St. Monica’s collects underwear, socks and school supplies for the students. Contact: Barbara Myrick
