HSP Salutes Two Wonderful, Longtime Supporters!

A few days ago, HSP got a surprise visit from two of our longtime supporters, Jack Ulrich and Bill Klein. Both Jack and Bill have been active in serving the needy of the community for decades, so we thought it would only be appropriate to recognize them for their service. Bill has been a volunteer driver, delivering greatly needed groceries and other goods to the needy seniors in HSP’s project, for over 20 years, and Jack has been volunteering in the same capacity for over 10. Both Bill and Jack have been active helping the community outside of HSP through the Wheaton Kiwanis Club. Bill has been a member of the Kiwanis for 30 years, and Jack has been involved for 55 years!

We wanted to take this opportunity to say just how blessed HSP is to have the support of Bill, Jack, and all of the other members of the Wheaton Kiwanis Club. Their strong, enduring support has helped HSP make an impact in the lives of countless needy senior citizens and children over the years.

The reason Jack and Bill dropped by our center in the first place was to talk about Wheaton Kiwanis Club’s Annual Pancake Day, which held on at Gary United Methodist Church Saturday May 5th from 7 a.m until Noon. This is the club’s 61st Pancake Day, and is a very big, yearly event for the club. Admission to the event is free, and will feature a lot of family fun including raffles and, of course, some delicious pancakes. Any resources donated to the Wheaton Kiwanis through the event go directly to help the many community groups the club supports, including HSP!
