Welcome Back Volunteers!

Elgin Community College students, Becca Sturwold and Kara Collins have been volunteering for HSP since 2006. “We came every Thursday for 3 years while we were in high school,” Kara tells us. Recently, the girls have been heavily involved with their academic lives in college. Kara, who is currently majoring in Social Work, plans on transferring to Western Illinois University next year and Becca, who is majoring in Communication Studies, will transfer to Loyola.

Due to their busy schedules, they took a break from volunteering, but have recently returned this past month. “We volunteer here because we like the cause and we want to help!” The girls explain. Their passion for volunteering is undeniable and has brought them back to HSP.

With the help of their church Youth Director, Bob Esmail, the team of three volunteers from Living Lord Lutheran Church in Bartlett sorted paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, and other paper goods for delivery. When they are not volunteering in the warehouse, they especially enjoy wrapping presents for the Children’s Birthday Project.

HSP is endlessly grateful for the support from our lovely volunteers!
