On November 20, 2015, the staff of Mount Pleasant Retirement Village donated coats, hats, mittens, and scarves to elementary school children in Monroe Local Schools. Over 50 warm items were donated to local children in need through The Butler County Success Program.

The Butler County Success Program’s mission is to remove non-cognitive barriers to learning by building bridges between home, school, and community to improve school success and self-reliance. They provide food, clothing and shelter, and help to find a medical home for families. This organization currently serves 94 families in the city of Monroe and has been meeting the needs of Butler County children for ten years.

Each year the needs and numbers of area children continue to increase. Lindsay Henriquez with Butler County Success Program explains they are always in need of personal hygiene products including body wash, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, feminine products, and clothes.

Mount Pleasant Administrator Josie Browning-Haney said, "Our staff members told us about the program offered at the school and thought we could help. We are fortunate to be able to come together as employees and support our community. "
