HSP Bids Farewell to Two Fantastic Interns!

At the Humanitarian Service Project we host many interns who utilize their talents and skills to assist HSP in our projects to reach the needy senior citizens and children that we serve. The only thing we don’t like about these interns is that we will, inevitably, have to say goodbye. Today we at HSP gathered to do just that; to bid farewell to Allie Effrein and Michelle Koller, two of our wonderful, bright interns. Allie and Michelle both began their internships in January (in our Grant Writing and Public Relations departments respectively,) and have since become important fixtures of the HSP office.

Both Allie and Michelle are leaving HSP to begin new, exciting chapters in their lives. Michelle, whose last day was today, will be graduating from Wheaton College in a matter of days, and will be getting married a month later. She will be moving to Jackson, Mississippi with her husband-to-be who will be continuing his education there. Allie, who will be leaving HSP next week, has recently been hired by the non-profit organization Best Buddies in Chicago, where she will be continuing to use her skills and intelligence to help others.

Today, Michelle mentioned how happy she was that she ended up at HSP for her internship, saying that it was a very enjoyable and useful experience. Allie echoed these sentiments, when she expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to work in our grant writing department. Likewise, everyone at HSP feels truly blessed to have worked with two gifted and hard working interns like Allie and Michelle. Please join us in wishing Allie and Michelle good luck in all their future endeavors!
