Thank you Volt!

Humanitarian Service Project would like to extend a big thank you to a group from Volt, a workforce management company in Downers Grove, who volunteered their time to wrap gifts for the needy children served by our Children’s Birthday Project. The group of thirteen took more than two hours out of their busy work schedules and helped us wrap gifts for thirty five needy children. When you take into account that each child receives between 4-10 new toys, 5-7 books, numerous smaller gifts, school supplies and party supplies, wrapping all the gifts for thirty five children is no small undertaking. These Volt volunteers even donated the wrapping paper and ribbon they used to wrap the gifts. Again, we’d like to thank this wonderful group from Volt for spending part of their day helping us reach children in need.

This fantastic show of support from Volt comes at a very important time. In order to devote the energy necessary to serving the needy seniors and families in our programs during the months leading up to our Christmas Offering, it is important for us to get a leg up on wrapping birthday gifts for needy children with winter birthdays as soon as possible. The assistance of this group from Volt, and many of our other volunteer wrappers has enabled us to do just that. If you too would like to be involved in HSP’s Children’s Birthday Project, either as a volunteer wrapper or in some other way, you can learn more about it on our website:
