Star and Crescent Closed 12/8

It is with a heavy heart that we must inform everyone that the S&C will be closed today, on our last day of service of the semester.  Our chef cannot come in due to a family emergency, and no chef means no food.  But we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for making this such a special semester!  To all of our customers, employees, and donors, thank you so much for helping us make the S&C what it is.  Let’s look forward to another great semester of food and friends in the spring!

 

On a separate note, we encourage everyone to donate to the charities that today’s meals would have benefited!  The links to date are listed below:

Wesleyan Refugee Project: “WRP is excited to announce the first in a series of efforts to help refugees and displaced students access higher education.  WRP is working to crowdfund enough support for one Syrian refugee student to attend college in Jordan for four years.”

ACLU: “For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.  Whether it’s achieving full equality for LGBT people, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age of widespread government surveillance, ending mass incarceration, or preserving the right to vote or the right to have an abortion, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach.”

Fundraising Week at the Star and Crescent

In the wake of the election, we at the S&C want to extend an invitation to anyone feeling scared, frustrated, or outright angry.  We have always endeavored to try and make the restaurant a safe, comfortable space that promotes dialogue and discussion over some tasty food.  But, it is more important now than ever to make a concerted effort to support the marginalized communities most affected by recent events.  Therefore, this week, we will be collecting donations for a different charity at every meal (of course, any and all contributions to these fundraisers are optional and left to your discretion). If you cannot make it to one of the week’s fundraisers, but would still like to contribute, we will post links to the sites where you can donate to the organizations directly.  We hope you will join us in breaking bread and spreading awareness about a few wonderful causes.

Descriptions of the organizations and their websites are listed at the bottom.
