Snow? What Snow?

Forgive the cliché but the weather outside is frightful, but Humanitarian Service Project’s volunteers are so delightful. Today, despite inclement weather, there were several volunteers who came in (many of them on short notice no less) to help us prepare for our senior delivery day tomorrow. First, there was a group of several of our wonderful supporters who made room in their schedules on short notice to help us sort all of the fresh produce for the 120 needy seniors that we will be delivering to tomorrow. Secondly, we want to thank our intrepid volunteer drivers Mike Reich and Tom Hogan, who completely shrugged off the snowstorm to pick up a donation of bread for our deliver day project as well. We want to thank all of these volunteers, Karla Hogan, Christiane Blume, Mike Bolsoni, Steve Stasiak, Marilyn Kinney, Mike, Tom, and the other friends of HSP who took time out of their day today to help prepare us to reach all of the needy seniors we will serve tomorrow.

Every month each of the 120 needy senior citizens in our Senior Citizen Project receive 90 pounds of essentially groceries including, fresh produce, several frozen meats, fresh bread, non-perishables, paper products, personal care items, and a small gift from their “secret pal.” So many wonderful friends of HSP help make this possible in numerous different ways such as, sponsoring a senior in the program, being a “secret pal,” being part of our Monday Food Sorting Team, or volunteering as a loader or driver on our delivery days themselves. If reaching out to senior citizens who are truly in need, in any one of these ways, interests you, you can see our website for more information:
