Senior Delivery Day is Right Around the Corner

Once again HSP is gearing up for our monthly, Senior Citizen Project delivery day, which is happening tomorrow, the 22nd of September. On our delivery days our volunteer delivery drivers personally deliver 90 pounds of fresh fruits, crisp vegetables, non-perishable food, frozen meat, bread, paper products, personal care items, and a gift from a “secret pal” to each of the 120 needy seniors served by our project.
Today was a very happening day around HSP as we prepared for tomorrow’s event. We would like to recognize our dedicated volunteers Steve Stasiak and Mike Reich for picking up the Pepperidge Farm bread for our seniors. We would also like to thank all of the volunteers who came, on short notice no less, to help us sort the fresh fruits and vegetables we ordered from Caputo’s. These friends of the project; Gretchen Van Dyn, Sandra Burke, Peter Stepaniuk, Linda Krieger, Mark Pierce, Marilyn Kinney, Dawn Spiewak, and Mary Persinger, were all smiles despite the gloomy weather.  Everyone today did a smashing job and once again thank you for coming in last minute and helping out.

We would also like to acknowledge Rose Garcia, founder of the DuPage County chapter of Birthday Cakes 4 Free, who brought eight lovely cakes donated from Whole Foods for our seniors with birthdays this month.

If you are interested in being involved in our senior delivery days there are numerous ways for you to join in. Please feel free to call us at 630-221-8340 or email us at with any questions.
