DONATE NOW TO SUPPORT OUR MISSION!

STARSintergen works to build relationships within the community that benefit both students and seniors through our programs. Fulfilling this mission is no easy task. It requires an extensive commitment of time, energy and financial resources that far surpass the funding we receive from the school district. We depend on a mix of fundraising activities to support our program and ongoing success. Contact us at starsintergen@gmail.com to support our programs.
