Wisconsin Grand Chapter Charities Giving to Others
Eastern Star Chapters are very active in their local communities and strive to “Make A Difference”. Each year, the Eastern Star donates funds to a wide variety of worthy charities at the local, state and national levels. Community Involvement Our local Eastern Star chapters volunteer their time, expertise, and financial support at a local level. Many members serve on school boards, church activities, youth leadership, nursing home visitation, Habitat for Humanity, library and school volunteers, etc. They also have fund raisers for food shelves, library programs, women’s shelters, gardening projects, school programs such as the “Backpack Program”, Toys for Tots, Bears for Kids, etc.
