Thank You Wheaton Rotary!

Yesterday, HSP was ecstatic to receive a gracious donation of 840 backpacks from the Wheaton Rotary Club.  The 21 cases of backpacks were dropped off by Roger Tully, a respected member of the Wheaton Rotary Club.  We would like to thank the Rotary Club for such a generous donation that will enable us to fulfill the needs of many impoverished children in the area.  The Wheaton Rotary donation (and other recent school supply donations) will be sent directly to local schools with the greatest need. The Rotary Club collected the backpacks as part of their annual drive, spearheaded by club member, Dr. Lori Belha. This year was the club's most successful drive to date with over 1500 backpacks donated in total!

Yesterday was also the Dupage County Back to School Fair for which we dropped off three vans filled to the brim with school supplies for needy children, and schools!  Thanks to all the participants of the drive, you are greatly appreciated.  We are accepting school supply donations through October, so help us give kids the supplies they need for a meaningful school year.  To learn more, visit
