HSP we are blessed to have quality volunteers who are
friendly, enthusiastic, and focus on the excellence of the service they give.
This week, three groups who have a volunteering relationship with HSP, devoted time to help us prepare for our up-coming
holiday projects. Yesterday, a group from sorted bread for families enrolled in the
Christmas Offering. This group was the
second group from Resurrection Lutheran that has come in the last two weeks. The items sorted this week was, a mixture of
white and wheat breads, bagels, hamburger and hot dog bun, and Cinnamon swirl
Bread. Resurrection Lutheran Middle School
Also yesterday, Lexis Nexis of Lombard brought six wholehearted volunteers that put together bags of non- perishable food for our seniors and helped organize our pantry shelves. Lexis Nexis helps throughout the year. Most recently in late September, they came to help wrap gifts for the Children’s Birthday Project. We were happy to see familiar faces as a number of volunteers yesterday, volunteered in September and in previous events. They help often; especially during busy times, giving a hand to enable us to best serve the needy families and seniors in our projects.

Today, a spirited group form
helped make the bread packages for the families in
the Christmas Offering. Peggy, A teacher
at Willowbrook High, mentioned this is the fifth year that her class has helped
here at Willowbrook High School HSP; and, it brings the best out of her students. Peggy’s students learn how do take
instruction, to persevere, problem solving skills, and time management skills
as a part of their transitional curriculum. These students from are aware of what goes on in the community and being
active with Willowbrook High School HSP is a positive way to influence the place they call
home. “It does not take much to help,”
Peggy adds, “You don’t have to have ‘Everything’ in the world to give.” Indeed the students at have embraced being active in the community which
we appreciate here at Willowbrook High School HSP.
Again, we want to thank all of our volunteers for the quality service they give here at
HSP. We also want to recognize all of our volunteers
that help this time of the year. Moreover,
