Dear Coronado,

Please help us make it a fun Halloween for underprivileged kids at the Monarch School! There will be no Halloween costumes collected this year. Instead, the school would like to distribute goodie bags to all 300 of their students. Please consider donating cash or picking up extra items when you go Halloween shopping for your own kids!
