Allured Business Media Donates $10,000 to HSP’s Senior Citizen Project!

HSP would like to thank everyone at Allured Business Media, who generously donated all the proceeds from their Charity Garage Sale to HSP for their Senior Citizen Project.  Today, Allured representative Anita Singh presented HSP with a series of checks totaling $10,000.

On September 7th and 8th, the Carol Stream company held their garage sale in their warehouse, at 336 Gunderson Drive, Suite A. After the dust settled, $5,000 came in from the sale, and was generously matched, dollar for dollar, by Allured! The funds received represent two thirds of a full endowment to enroll a new senior into our program. Thanks to another recent partial endowment, HSP is close enough now to increase our program by one new senior. This means that there will be a permanent slot for another senior in our program forever.

Furthermore, many items that were not sold at the sale were donated to HSP to help fulfill the needs of the impoverished seniors served by HSP.  Each senior in the Senior Citizen Project has an individual wishlist consisting of household items that they need to make their lives easier, but they cannot afford.  Allured generously donated many such items that were not sold at the garage sale, including vacuums, TVs, and a computer. These items were delivered to the seniors as part of our Senior Delivery Day this past Saturday.
Our Senior Citizen Project helps impoverished seniors in DuPage and Kane Counties by providing a monthly 90 pound delivery of groceries, non-perishables, paper supplies, and toiletries. 

HSP would like to specifically recognize Allured President Jan Ludwig for organizing the event. HSP is very grateful to Allured for everything they have done, both for HSP and for the needy seniors they have helped!
