Stars in a Jar - Build a Jar Night

October 22, 2019

Stars in a Jar is an organization that helps to connect childhood cancer survivors with kids who are sick in the hospital. We do this with short inspirational messages that are folded into origami stars. Each message is authored by a cancer survivor but handwritten with help from the community. Once delivered to a patient in the hospital, each star is taken out of the jar and unfolded for them to discover. Its a big way of sending love and support from many different people and a way for the survivor to say, I was there once and you can do it too.

Come join us to help build these messages of hope. We provide all the materials and teach you how to fold!

The event will be held at Elmvale Acres library from 5:00-6:30
