Monarch Spreads the Word: Holiday Dinner for Free!

Monarch has joined Jimmy’s efforts to offer this opportunity to the community and is helping to spread the word with other agencies in the hopes that no one goes without a nice meal this holiday season. “At Monarch, we see the effects on people of being unemployed or underemployed. We applaud our community partner, Blue Bay, for offering this generous community service,” says Dr. Peggy Terhune, CEO for Monarch. “We are hoping that other non profit agencies, churches and community members will help spread the word to those in need to visit Blue Bay and have a delicious holiday meal” adds Terhune.
