Zurich North America Graciously Hosts (and Gives to) HSP

HSP was happy to be a guest of Zurich North America in Schaumburg yesterday as part of their inaugural Global Community Week. HSP was one of a number of non-profits invited to meet with Zurich employees, and to let them know about HSP’s mission and projects to serve the needy of DuPage and Kane Counties.

HSP Assistant Director Kristin Maxwell represented HSP at Zurich yesterday and said she had a fabulous time. She said that everyone at Zurich was very motivated to give back to the community, and were very interested in learning more about HSP. 

Various groups at Zurich have helped HSP reach the needy in the past. Their most recent contribution was of school supplies and toys for the needy children in our Children’s Birthday Project last year, or rather, that was their most recent contribution until yesterday. Zurich employees mobilized so strongly to provide “Care Kits” for our needy seniors and “Party in a Bag kits” for our needy children that Kristin had to return to Zurich this morning for an unanticipated, second necessary load that still filled up her Ford Expedition to the brim. These wonderful kits will surely bring joy to both the seniors and children that we serve in our programs. We want to thank everyone at Zurich for both this wonderful donation, and for hosting us for their Global Community Week.
