All Star Adventures Helping Send Kids to College
July 13, 2018
A lesson in philanthropy is being taught at All Star Adventures in Wichita. Employees are helping promote Stars for Scholars, a nationwide fundraiser to benefit Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots). The mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to those who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
For many teenagers, a summer job at a family entertainment center, waterpark or theme park is the ultimate first job because of the ability to earn money and gain work experience in a fun environment. Stars for Scholars introduces young employees across the United States to the importance of taking action and giving back to charity.
When people donate, they write their name on a paper gold star in recognition for their contribution. Fallen Patriots is grateful to leadership staff at Adventure Landing for investing time and energy to educate employees on how to ask for donations on top of normal pricing.
