Volunteers Sharing the Christmas Spirit

By Laura Saad, Intern

On Saturday, December 19th, volunteers gathered at Humanitarian Service Project's center to help distribute food and gifts to 150 families in need. Thanks to the generous support of many donors, families of DuPage and Kane County were able to receive bags of toys for their children this holiday season. Along with the gifts, families were offered a frozen turkey and winter coats. With a blanket of white covering the grounds and laughter in the air, the spirit of Christmas was truly present.

Bright and early, volunteers arrived to ensure a smooth and steady operational flow. Whether working in the warehouse, the loading dock, storage truck, or check-in point, each and every volunteer contributed to Saturday's success. Santa was also present, making his rounds to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
