HSP Picks “Golden Ticket Winners” during Visit to Lake Park Elementary

Yesterday HSP’s Assistant Director, Kristin Maxwell, and two former interns, Tawney and Regina Pauling, represented HSP at the year end “Awards Assembly” at Lake Park Elementary School in Addison. The school, whose needy students were all adopted into our Children’s Birthday Project earlier this year, invited HSP to the event to draw the winners of 10 bikes HSP donated to the school. The students became eligible for the drawing by earning a “golden ticket” by displaying school spirit, having perfect attendance, or being nominated by a teacher. Kristin, Tawney, and Regina were asked to draw the names of the lucky kids who would be awarded the bikes.

HSP has been very excited with our partnership with Lake Park Elementary because we know there is so much need for service there. Around 88% of the students at the school are from families with such low incomes that they receive subsidized lunch. Since our partnership with Lake Park Elementary began, we have been happy to assist Principal Deb Martello, and the rest of the faculty at the school, fulfill the needs of these children whose families are under incredible financial strain. We want to thank all of our supporters for helping us at HSP make a difference in the lives of these needy children. It is only because of you that HSP has been able to reach Lake Park Elementary with, not only these wonderful bikes, but to provide 20 pound birthday boxes full of gifts, books, school supplies, and party supplies for every needy child at the school.
