Every year, Starr Commonwealth encourages our friends and family to give back during the holiday season. Some choose to adopt a family in need, while others make donations to nonprofit organizations that are near and dear to their hearts. This year, friends of Starr pitched in to create holiday baskets for all of the students on our Albion campus.
Supporters of Starr – including several board members – decided to make a difference by getting together with their friends, family and coworkers to adopt a cottage on our Albion campus. With twelve cottages open, there were plenty to choose from, and some people decided that their hearts were large enough to adopt more than one.
These generous patrons provided games, crafts, movies, snacks and cherished items like ranch dressing to the students who will be with Starr for the holidays, with the idea of brightening our students’ days and making them feel like a part of our family. There were so many donated items that each of the twelve cottages will receive two baskets: one with food and the other with entertainment. The baskets of goodies will be delivered to each cottage in time for the students to be able to enjoy all of the gifts.
Thank you to each person who thought of our students this holiday season; your gift means more than you may know to the students who are in our care.
