Earlier this month, students from Starr Commonwealth’s Youth Assistance Program (YAP) and Lincoln Park Public Schools had the opportunity to take a tour of Wayne State University. This trip opened up a dialogue for students on what furthering their education can do for them, and got many of them thinking about the possibility of going to college.
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.
Starr Commonwealth is bringing some holiday cheer to the students on our Albion campus. This year, Jeff and Sharon Robinson of Olies Tree Farm, a former tree farm in the greater Albion-Marshall area, have donated a 30 foot tree, which will be lit up in the center of campus for everyone to enjoy through the beginning of the new year.
For the past several years, Starr Commonwealth has participated in Giving Tuesday – a global day of giving. Falling on November 27th, this day of generosity creates an opportunity for people to show their support for the organizations and causes that matter most to them, and to encourage their friends and family to follow their lead. As you consider which organizations you would like to share your support with this year, we hope that Starr will be one of them.
