Interact is hoping to continue the fund raising tradition and we need everyone's help! With over 2,000 students at Monte Vista, Interact is not asking for large donations by each student.  We are hoping for large participation of small donations, which would raise so much for the Foundation.  If everyone donated $2.50 we would raise over $5,000!  We can do it!  $2.50 is less than a cup of coffee!
