Computer Delivery

Today two of our friendly volunteers Mike and Dick have agreed to deliver five computers to seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. The deliveries are in towns throughout Dupage County including Naperville, Elmhurst, & Willowbrook. Yesterday the dedicated volunteers worked on updating the computers to ensure that they worked efficiently. Today they will be delivering the computers to the seniors' homes. They will also set them up and answer any questions the seniors may have about using their new computers.
The computers allow the seniors to keep in contact with family members. They can be used for recreation and way to stay up to date with current events. Many seniors know how to use the computers because their children or other family members taught them.

Each senior gets a monitor, a tower, a keyboard and a mouse. These items have all been donated by generous people and are in very good condition.


We want to thank our generous volunteers, Mike and Dick for taking the time to help out our seniors. We appreciate all their hard work.

We hope these computers bring a lot of joy and happiness to all the seniors who will be receiving them today. Last week Mike delivered a few computers to some seniors. We spoke with one senior who said “I had a great experience with my delivery driver. He set up everything for me. I am very grateful for the computer, I like it a lot and want to thank HSP. The best part about having a computer is the company.” She now has a way to stay in contact with friends and family.
