History of Morgan County Golden Stars:
The project began in 2006, when Doug Schossow and Cindy Schneider joining together to provide children in Fort Morgan with a coat. Cindy had noticed that children in the elementary schools were without coats and the goal was to get all of those children a coat. This started with 15 coats and it grew to 50 coats by 2007. In 2011, the Morgan County Golden Stars joined forces with Sheriff Crone's Christmas referral program. More than 600 children were assisted that year. The program grew more each year. By 2017, more than 984 children were given a coat, clothing and toys for Christmas.
In 2021, the Morgan County Golden Stars helped 188 families and assisted 603 children. Continuing with our mission to give each child a coat, shoes, two sets of clothes and a toy.
We also have a scholarship program that is community service driven. We want to reward and assist students that invest their time into the community. Another part of the program is a veteran fund, which gives us the ability to help veterans that are in crisis.
We raise money through donations from the public and our annual banquet. Our annual banquet will be November 12th 2022, starting at 5:00pm at the Morgan County Fairgrounds. Please join us for a night of good food and fun! Help us raise money to continue the mission of helping others in a time of need.
