HSP Thanks Some Great Volunteers!

Humanitarian Service Project would like to extend a big thank you to Heather Kobzarev, Laura Van Dame, and Norma Villasenor, who volunteered time in our warehouse yesterday to help us prepare for the upcoming senior delivery day, and Christmas Offering. The three came in as part of a course they are taking at Elmhurst College. They spent over two hours sorting food non-perishable food that had been donated through a number of fantastic food drives. We want to thank these three for their hard work. We would also like to thank our volunteers Tom Hogan, who helped this group from Elmhurst get acclimated to our warehouse, and Karyn Rizzo, who joined up with the group and sorted onions for the needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project.

The work done by these wonderful volunteers will help HSP reach out to the needy families and senior citizens we serve. At Christmas time we will be providing gifts for an estimated 1200 needy children and the 120 needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. 250 of the families in our Children’s Birthday Project will also receive food for Christmas. Considering all of this, on top of the monthly delivery of 90 pounds of groceries to the needy seniors in the Senior Citizen Project, we rely a lot on the heartfelt support of volunteers like these. If you are interested in volunteering on weekdays in the month of December to help out, like these fine volunteers, please call us at 630-221-8340 so that we can reserve you a spot.
