From Classroom to Warehouse

Humanitarian Service Project would like to extend our thanks to a group of sophomores from Montini Catholic High School in Lombard, who volunteered in our center as part of the school’s sophomore service day. The students at Montini participate in service days as a way to get active in the community. The Montini students also have a community service requirement of ten hours every year, and the service days better acquaint the students with places like the HSP where they can fulfill that requirement. We think it is fantastic to see young people mobilizing to make an impact in the community, and these students from Montini certainly did a great job.

These students from Montini were working in our warehouse getting food organized for the needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project, with a great volunteer of ours, Tom Hogan. The students liked working back in the warehouse with Tom so much that they have asked if they can bring a much larger group next year. Considering the fantastic job they did, we are really happy that they enjoyed the work so much. As the Christmas season gets closer and closer, HSP has more need for groups and individuals to do work in the warehouse, to help organize food and gifts for the needy seniors and families we serve. We especially have need in the month of December for adult or high school aged volunteers. If you would be interested in volunteering, please call us at 630-221-8340.
