Grandparent's Day Volunteers Needed!

Picture of the actual meal a donor brought to a senior's home for Friendship Day. Pictured is Mostaccioli, Pizza, Pear, Banana, Chex Mix and Juice.

We hope you all had wonderful Labor Day weekends. Here at HSP, we are focusing on the next upcoming holiday, Grandparent's Day, Sunday, September 12th.

We have a list of seniors that have requested meals for this occasion.

Volunteers would contact the senior to set up a time and date, donate, and deliver a meal to the senior. The meals do not necessarily have to be delivered on the holiday itself, but rather at a time that works for both the volunteer and the senior.

Meals can be home-cooked or purchased from a store or restaurant.

Listed below are the seniors we are still in need of volunteers for and their towns. Please let us know if you would be interested and able to help. Contact us by email:
scp@humanitarianservice.org or phone: 630-221-8340.

Aurora: Doris, Barbara, & Lucille
Bensenville: Eleanor
Carol Stream: Mary, Ruth, Essie Mae, Elise, & Judi
Villa Park: Mary Jo & Shirley
Warrenville: Lucille
Wheaton: Annie, Icorene, Sava, Regina, Carl & Wilma
Willowbrook: Barbara

Maureen, a volunteer, shares her experience:

"The whole experience was so life affirming and just a joy for us to do. The seniors may have gotten a meal, but it was Jim & I that received the greatest rewards. Thanks for letting us participate. We will be certainly be participating again!"

Please let us know if you are interested and able to help!
