Your donation to the Star Kids Program is greatly appreciated. One life at a time, we are helping to break the intergenerational cycle of crime, poverty, substance abuse, disease, and depression, which has burdened many of our local families. Our communities have grown stronger with every student who graduates high school, and pursues higher education. Thank you for the role that you play in helping our Star Kids succeed.
