Starship Travel loves to give back to our community, and the communities of all the places we are lucky enough to travel. We’ve been fortunate enough to visit these beautiful countries, so we try to leave them better than when we came.
Feed my Starving Children-
Feed my Starving Children is an organization dedicated to bringing food to those who need it all around the world. Volunteers compete in teams to pack meals for undernourished children in more than 60 countries. We have participated in this fun event twice.
National Night Out 2018- We supported the South Elgin community at the National Night Out on August 7th, 2018 with a donation and a booth. This is a fun community event that we love participating in!
Chamberfest Golf Outing- We supported Chamberfest 2018 as a Raffle Prize Sponsor. This was the 41st year of continuous play, and one of the longest-running golf outings in the Fox River Valley.
Youth Leadership Academy Extravaganza 2018- The Extravaganza Dinner and Auction Event raised money for students to attend college. 100% of the YLA students come from low-income families, and 80% will be first-generation college educated. Starship Travel supported the event by making a donation and attending!
Rachel’s 5k Walk for Love- This was a very impactful event in support of giving shoes to the impoverished children through the United States, Haiti and Africa. Starship Travel manned a booth and had a blast supporting this fundraiser!

This is a fun community event in South Elgin. It is the town’s largest block party with music, dancing, and entertainment for the kids. Many South Elgin businesses participate in this event, and Starship was lucky enough to be one of them.

Halloween Trunk or Treat-
Starship participates annually in our community’s Halloween Trunk or Treating event. We decorate our cars, dress up, and pass out candy to the kids. This event is always so much fun.
Panama Christmas Party-
When we were in Panama, we had the opportunity to spend time in an orphanage. We went during Christmas time, and had an amazing time playing games, making balloons and eating pizza. The children were wonderful, and we had a blast.
Painting the soccer field in Cabo-
Cancun painting a preschool-
While in Cancun in December, we were given the opportunity to paint a local preschool. This was a fun event, and Starship was lucky to participate. We especially loved meeting and talking with the local children who are affected.
Christmas shopping for Cancun orphanage-
While enjoying a vacation in Cancun, Starship went to a local store with a local driver to purchase Christmas gifts for the children in the orphanage nearby. We went in with $250, and came out with 12 bags stuffed with toys and gifts.
Funjet 500 Gold and Platinum House Fire-
This family lost their home and all their belongings in a house fire. While in Jamaica with Funjet, we provided clothing and donations to the family to help them get back on their feet.
