Today, Stephen Starr and STARR Restaurants launched a “Support Our Schools” fundraising and awareness effort with The School District of Philadelphia. The month-long initiative will request that patrons to all of Starr’s Philadelphia restaurants to add a donation to the schools, right onto their checks.
Starr says “the School District’s needs are at historical proportions, we simply can’t turn our backs on it and wait for others to try to fix it; we all have to do our part.”
The initiative will benefit three specific areas of need:
- Technology – Multimedia labs will be incorporated into instruction for research and programming
- Playworks – Organized elementary school recess program at elementary schools
- Summer Internships – Six-week program for high school students in partnership with WorkReady Philadelphia
STARR Restaurants is also committing to making a significant donation for Playworks as well as creating VIP experiences and packages to that will be auctioned off at charitybuzz.com.
