Daystar was founded in 1982 as a small parish ministry of "people helping people" to provide emergency assistance to individuals and families. Recognized as an important asset in the community, Daystar has grown into a major social service agency. Last fiscal year, Daystar impacted the lives of more than 45,000 children, women, and men. The goal is to alleviate the suffering and hopelessness experienced by members of the community who are economically or physically challenged. Most recipients are living below the federal poverty level.
Thousands of individuals and families are helped each year through the support of our regular volunteers and only four full-time and two part-time staff.More than 96% of every dollar is used for Client Services and only 4% for Administration.
Daystar Life Center is celebrating 33 years of people helping people!
We are celebrating the entire month of August…You are cordially invited to the #LoveDaystar Birthday Party!
Please join us for cake.
On August 11, 1982 Daystar Life Center opened its doors and has been serving neighbors in need ever since.
We will celebrate our birthday with volunteers,
staff, donors and clients all month long. Donations in honor of Daystar's birthday will be accepted all month too.
Although this is a "nonevent," a birthday would not be complete without cake. Please stop by Daystar Life Center, 226 6th St S, at 10:30 am on August 11th to have a slice of birthday cake with us. Wear any jersey with #33 to enter your name in a drawing to win Tampa Bay Rays tickets!
