Starlight Staff in the Spirit of Holiday Giving
2017-12-14 CATEGORY: Starlight
Staff members of Starlight Theatre wrapped up their “Holiday Spirit Week” on Dec. 10 by donating toys, art supplies and games to make the season merrier for children served by Robert’s Place in Kansas City, Kan.
In connection with mental health organization PACES, Robert’s Place provides emergency shelter for children who are suspected victims of abuse or neglect. The children’s shelter opened in 2015.
“Starlight employees were very happy to help make the holidays – and every day – a little brighter for these children in need in our community,” said Jacques’ Hassen. The gifts also allowed Starlight staff to support the efforts of one of their former coworkers, Allison McLain, who now serves as director of communications and development at Wyandot Inc., which oversees the PACES organization.
