Jacobs Family, Star Headlight Donate Generously

Thank you, Jacobs family and Star Headlight & Lantern Co., Inc., for your generous lead gift to the Mendon Public Library “Heart of Our Town” capital campaign.

Star Headlight was founded in 1889 by five founding owners. Four months later, George Washington Jacobs bought the sole controlling interest. Since then, the company has maintained production in Rochester, N.Y., and its vicinity with the current headquarters and manufacturing center in Avon, N.Y. The Jacobs family has guided the company through four generations of leadership to become a leader in the rail, amber light and emergency lighting markets. Learn more about the company here.

“Our children need and deserve a place where literacy and learning play a major role in who they can become,” says Melissa Jacobs, who lives in Mendon and is a member of the capital campaign committee.

We deeply appreciate this combination family and business gift!
