Thank You OCC and Glenbard South Key Club

We at Humanitarian Service Project have been blessed with the friendship of numerous wonderful individuals and organizations, who have been fantastic partners in our efforts to reach out to needy families and senior citizens in the area. We want to take this time to thank two specific groups who came to our center in Carol Stream to help out on Friday of last week. The first group we’d like to thank is a group of 10 volunteers from OCC in Chicago who came in to sort the fresh produce that went out to the seniors in our Senior Citizen Project as part of our delivery day this past Saturday. The employees of OCC have been fantastic friends of HSP. They have, to date, raised over $18,000 for our Senior Citizen Project through employee “jeans days,” employee raffles, and other charitable giving. This group of 10 came, for the second time this year, to volunteer in order to get a hands on understanding of what their generous giving allows us to do for the needy seniors we serve. We want to extend our deepest thanks to these volunteers, Karen, Jon, Ty, Denise, Joe, Carmen, Steve, David, and Valerie and all of the other employees at OCC, for all the support they have given to HSP.

The second group we would like to thank is a group of six students from Glenbard South High School’s Key Club, for also assisting in our warehouse on Friday. The club at Glenbard South has been regularly coming in on the day before our delivery days for years to help sort produce, and do other jobs in our warehouse. All of the wonderful young people who volunteered here at HSP through the Glenbard South Key Club have helped us make a difference in the lives of countless people in need. We want to thank this group of six, and all of those who have come before from the club, for all their heartfelt work. At this time of year, our need for volunteer groups like these really increases. If you, either as an individual or in a group, would like to volunteer some time helping out here at HSP, please call us at 630-221-8340 to reserve a time for the month of December.
