Stars of Hope for Superstorm Sandy victims


Volunteers and organizers began painting 3,000 stars today at Missouri Southern State University to encourage the recovery effort of Superstorm Sandy.

They painted the base-coat of 100 of the Stars of Hope.

The stars will be given to the Joplin "On Fire" for a service program to be sent off to areas hit by Sandy.

Nationally, 10,000 stars will be made for the recovery effort.

Organizers say it's a way of showing those suffering that someone cares.

"I see hope in Joplin and I hope that somehow this will transfer over and give those people in New Jersey and New York and that area a similar amount of hope," says James Jackson.

The stars will be available for sponsorship tonight at McAlister's starting at 5 p.m.  Stars are $10 for one and $20 for three.

They will be sent off on September 13.
