Where Did The Money Go In 2013?

We deliberately operate on a shoestring so that we can offer our services to cash-strapped organizations at no cost. For program supplies we haunt Good Will, Dollar Stores, and Value Village. We have become very adept coupon and sales shoppers.  However we recognize that in expanding our focus to the creation and training of new STAR teams in 2014 we will need cold, hard cash.

  • Items in green were “in-kind” donations (approx. $1467.00)
  • Items in blue were the targets of directed donations.
