Part of MorningStar’s chosen responsibility as a company, and as individuals, is to invest our time and talents in charitable projects within our own city and around the world. In this, Founder Ken Jaeger takes a decided lead.
Ken is passionate about helping the poor in Third World countries. From his earliest days in Colorado, he was deeply impacted by abject poverty internationally. Ken resolved then to use any success he might achieve in combating despair with hope.
Since 1985, he has made trips of mercy to Juarez, Mexico; central Mexico; Honduras; Sudan; Kenya; and South Africa. In 2008, he directed his energies to the orphans of Puerto Cabazas, Nicaragua. To this remote village Ken now leads building teams three times a year through a sponsorship with Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch, CO, of which Ken has long been a member. Last year, two MorningStar staff joined him in Puerto Cabazas, and for Christmas 2012, Ken brought down not only his own family, but St. Nic(!) gifts given by our residents.
