The W.H. Stark House is hosting a food drive to support the Salvation Army of Orange. Donations can be dropped off during their Stark Family Christmas Guided Holiday Tours on select dates during December.

“The Stark Foundation invites the community to participate in these efforts by contributing to the food drives and pajama collections at the designated venues. By uniting in compassion and generosity, together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of our neighbors and spread the joy of the season,” said Clyde “Tad” McKee, president and chief executive officer of the Stark Foundation.
