HSP has recently been visited by a girl scout troop from Villa Park who generously made a donation to the Senior Citizen Project. The troop donated pots and pans in response to HSP's newsletter. We are so excited that the troop was able to bring HSP and the seniors items that we so desparately needed! The pots and pans will go to some great seniors who will be very surprised and excited to receive such an awesome gift. Thank you girl scouts!!

Here the volunteers are hard at work wrapping gifts for our Children's Birthday Project. We appreciated the care that the General Mill's employees put into wrapping the gifts.

Brand new toys that are donated to the Children's Birthday Project are sorted to be age and gender appropriate. Each child receives a birthday box full of toys that are chosen specifically for them. Every box includes:
- 6-15 new toys
- 1 new game
- 4 new books
- Party-in-a-Box (cake mix, party hats, plates, napkins, etc.)
- Stuffed animal or action figure
- School supplies
- 3 mini gifts
- 2 Beanie Babies
Wonderful volunteers take bags of gifts to wrap - some make it a family project, others make it a project for their organization, and some do it individually. Their efforts turn out beautifully wrapped birthday gifts in colorful paper and lovely ribbons.
In addition to receiving gifts on their birthday, each child is eligible to be a part of our summer program, Feed the Kids, which provides food for approximately 90 families. CBP children also receive Christmas gifts during the holiday season.
