HSP Connects United Stationers with Lake Park Elementary

This past week, United Stationers of Carol Stream extended a helping hand to Lake Park Elementary School in Addison. United Stationers, a distributor of office supplies, has donated 350 backpacks filled with school supplies, which were distributed Tuesday and Wednesday. Humanitarian Service Project is overjoyed to have connected the two, but the generosity of United Stationers comes to no surprise, since they are long time supporters of HSP

HSP adopted Lake Park Elementary into our Children’s Birthday Project due to their strong need for a helping hand. 88% of the students at Lake Park qualify for subsidized lunches, a figure that depicts the level of poverty these students face. When United Stationers contacted us with their gracious donation, Lake Park Elementary was the obvious choice. The donated school supplies present a substantial relief to parents and teachers alike.

Philanthropy is deeply important to United Stationers, who HSP has grown to rely on for school supplies each year. However, they reached a new level of generosity this year when they expressed a desire to distribute the school supplies directly to Lake Park Elementary. Their strong community outreach is a constant inspiration to HSP and we look forward to our continued friendship with them.
