Kohl’s Lends a Helping Hand

Today at HSP we were happy to welcome a spectacular group of five volunteers from Kohl’s. Kohl’s has its own charity organization called Kohl’s Cares and they donate three hours of volunteer time for each event along with money to community organizations like HSP. They were here with us today to help reorganize and redesign our pantry. In our warehouse we have shelves full of non-perishables, ready to eat meals, pasta, coffee, cookies, crackers, soups, and more! These wonderful volunteers spent their time today helping us streamline our warehouse’s food shelves, so we can serve our seniors more efficiently. Every month 120 seniors in our Senior Citizen Program receive 90 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen meat, bread, non-perishables, personal care items, and paper products.

We are very thankful for the continued support and dedicated service of Kohl’s and Kohl’s Cares volunteers. We want to especially thank Patty Capela for organizing her team to come out and volunteer today. Kohl’s has been a big supporter of HSP and our mission to alleviate the pain and suffering in the lives of impoverished children, seniors, and families in DuPage and Kane Counties. It is thanks to the generous support of companies and organizations like Kohl’s we are able to continue to serve the needs of those less fortunate then ourselves.
