Wrapper’s Delight

We at the Humanitarian Service Project aren’t necessarily comfortable around the microphone like Eminem or Kanye West (unless someone around the office is holding out on us,) but what we lack in enthusiasm for rapping we make up for in our love of wrapping…presents, that is. HSP loves the look of a nicely wrapped gift, and we appreciate anyone who knows their way around a roll of wrapping paper. For this reason, we would like to thank Cheryl Olsen, Caroline McAlpine and all the others at St Mark’s Episcopal Church who will be wrapping presents for twelve of our Children’s Birthday Boxes. Several of the ladies came yesterday and picked up 12 bags (which amount to over one hundred items) for a wrapping party they were hosting. Thank you so much for the wonderful wrapping support!

Every year, HSP provides birthday boxes full of toys and party supplies to over 1,000 area children with families below the poverty line. With each box containing 6-15 new toys, 4 books, and some smaller gifts, HSP would have to raid several party supply stores to be able to wrap all of those gifts. Thankfully, it doesn’t come to that, because of all the wonderful volunteers, like the group from St Mark’s, who have donated their time, wrapping paper, and wrapping talents to keep the gifts for our Children’s Birthday Boxes nice and wrapped. If you would like more information about wrapping gifts for our Children’s Birthday Project, you can read more under the “Wrap Gifts for Children” heading from this link: If supporting our Children’s Birthday Project by wrapping gifts for us sounds like something you’d like to do, either individually or as a group, please call us at 630-221-8340 or let us know.
