STAR Charities is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to vigilantly review community causes and subsequently provide assistance through education and donations.

STAR, which stands for Sharing Time and Resources, was registered as a charitable foundation in 2003 by Progressive Components in Wauconda, IL, and is a volunteer-run organization.

STAR works each year to bring much-needed food, clothing and other necessities to those less fortunate by working with local food pantries and schools. STAR also donates to larger charities such as the Parkinsonís Disease Foundation and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
