Star Awards

Our volunteers are S-T-A-R-S. They exemplify everything that is positive in our communities. They care enough about people in need to give the gift of time. They spend countless hours to help us raise the funds necessary to meet a wide variety of needs. Some of our Stars contribute year-round, working bingo, sitting on campaign committees or on committees of the Board of Directors. Other Stars participate exclusively during our campaign, helping with special fundraising events. They shine by example and therefore deserve our gratitude and thanks.
