Birthday Gifts and Bread for Lake Park Elementary

Earlier this week, a van full of birthday boxes for the needy children with October birthdays Lake Park Elementary was delivered from our center in Carol Stream to the school. HSP is very happy to be partnered with Lake Park Elementary as we know the need there is so great. 88% of students qualify for free or subsidized lunches. Earlier this year HSP was able to adopt all of these needy children into our Children’s Birthday Project. Each child in the Children’s Birthday Project Birthday Box includes a 20-25 pound package containing 4-10 toys, 5-7 books, numerous smaller “filler gifts,” school supplies, and all of the supplies necessary to hold a memorable birthday party.

HSP would like to thank volunteer Steve Stasiak, who volunteered his to make this delivery to Lake Park Elementary, in order to help us make these children’s (birth)days!

In addition to the boxes, HSP was also able to donate upwards of 24 boxes of Pepperidge Farm bread to Lake Park Elementary. This bread will be distributed to needy families with children at the school.

It is the support of our numerous volunteers and donors that has enabled HSP to make this difference in the lives of the needy children at Lake Park, and all of the other children served by our project. If you too would be interested in being involved in this project, you can learn more at our website:
