Thank You Service Learning Students!

Alex Thomas, a service learning student from College of DuPage

For the past several months, Humanitarian Service Project has enjoyed hosting a number of College of DuPage students through the school’s “Service Learning” program. Service Learning students at the school volunteer 20 hours at community organizations, like HSP, utilizing their time and talents to help others. We’ve had wonderful students through this program in the past, and the group we had this semester was no different. This spring, we were also lucky enough to students interested in doing service learning from Benedictine University and Elmhurst College come in to work alongside our COD helpers. They helped out around HSP in a myriad of ways by assisting with office procedures, working in our upstairs toy room, and helping out in our warehouse.

With the end of the school year fast approaching, these service learning students are finishing up their hours and leaving HSP. We wanted to take this opportunity to thank them for all their hard work, because they have done so much to help us reach out to the needy children and senior citizens we serve.
