Special thanks to Old Mission Rotary's Community Service Chair, Charlotte Cofield, for partnering with STAR/PAL on a service project to distribute back packs filled with school supplies to inner city youth on Friday, August 28th.  The Old Mission Rotary Foundation donated $1000 to the project.

STAR/PAL was founded in 1988 and is a San Diego-based nonprofit organization with a unique nationally recognized model of police and community collaboration. Sworn officers from the San Diego Police and County Probation Departments work side-by-side with civilian personnel and trained law enforcement volunteers to provide the leadership and mentoring critical in promoting youth safety, positive life choices, and academic success. All STAR/PAL programs are led by law enforcement officers who educate youth about the dangers of juvenile crime and violence.
