The Starke United kick-off event is scheduled for September 21st at 8:00 a.m. at the Knox Community Center.
WKVI’s Ed Hasnerl will be speaking during the event along with Irene Szakonyi and Knox Community School Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Peggy Shidaker. According to Starke United Executive Director, Julie Dessauer, they will be discussing programs that benefit from Starke United. Integrity Trade is sponsoring the day’s breakfast which will be catered by the Country Kettle.
This year’s goal is $50,000. The Knox Community School Corporation and the North Judson-San Pierre School Corporation have begun their fund drives for Starke United and now it’s your turn. All of the money donated to Starke United stays in Starke County to help over 70 organizations that help bring you programs and assistance. You may make a direct donation or you can inquire how you can donate through payroll deduction.
