Why We Love Judi and Cindy

If it seems like we’re doing a lot of writing about our volunteers it’s because we are – we just have so many wonderful people giving us their time and talents, and they often go unrecognized. We want to make sure you know that we couldn’t do all we do without them!

This morning we want to tell you about two of our Wednesday volunteers, Judi Simon and Cindy Fabbri. Judi and Cindy come in each week to do whatever kind of sorting is needed to prepare for the monthly holiday delivery for seniors. Today they’re back in the Secret Pal room inventorying all the extra gifts so that when it’s time to see which seniors didn’t get a Secret Pal gift it will be easier to find something suitable for them. Next week they’ll probably be pulling those gifts for the January 22 delivery. Other weeks you’ll find them sorting food for the seniors.

Judi has been volunteering regularly for almost 7 years, and has been a senior sponsor for over 15 years! She started out volunteering around the holidays after reading a newspaper article about HSP but wanted to do more once she stopped working. She’s always had an interest in helping seniors and enjoys doing a variety of things for HSP. Sometimes she helps sort toys and even brings home bags of them to wrap.

Cindy has been giving us her time for over a year now. She was looking for a volunteer opportunity and found us on the website for “Giving DuPage.” She started coming around the holidays and really enjoyed being a part of the Christmas Offering. She came back to help with the Christmas gift sorting and delivery again this year. Cindy also sponsors 4 children through the Children’s Birthday Project. When asked what she likes most about coming Cindy stated, “Christmas is a lot of fun, but so is the senior gift and food sorting. Plus I get to share recipes with Judi every week!” Sounds good to us! We’re so glad they keep coming back.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to Judi and Cindy for their hard work and dedication to HSP! We appreciate all you do!
