PROGRAMS > BRIDGING COMMUNITIES > Overview
Rising Stars strives follow in Baron’s generous footsteps by providing opportunities for our youth to give back to their community. One of the cornerstone philosophies of Rising Stars is that we all can and need to do our part to make life better for others. Kids learn that no matter what their situation is in life they can reach out and do something for someone else.
Throughout the school year Rising Stars runs a
Healthy Eating, Healthy Living
Program in elementary schools. Due to budget constraints physical education
programs have been cut so children don't have the opportunity to develop the
healthy habit of exercise. Members of the Rising Stars team spend the day with
students teaching physical skills, games, and the importance of physical
exercise and good nutrition so they can live healthy lives.
During the holiday season Rising Stars has a
Food and Toy Give-Away for local neighborhood families. The kids help sort and pack the food, chat with families when they arrive and while they wait for their holiday packages, and help distribute food to the adults and toys to the kids.
