Volunteers Abound!

HSP is entering into the busiest time of our year, so today we were very excited to have two wonderful volunteers ready to help! The first set of super helpers was a group of 7 students and their teachers from the Transitions program at DuPage High School District 88 in Addison. This morning, this group dropped off six large boxes non-perishable food from their food drive! However, these Transitions students weren’t done helping by just donating the food. They also spent their time helping us sort the food they brought, as well as, make boxes of non-perishable foods for our Christmas Offering. The students and staff from District 88 were a great help today. All of the donations that were sorted today are going towards helping needy families and seniors this holiday season! HSP wants to thank these students and staff, as well as everyone else who participated in this food drive!

Today HSP also had the pleasure of working with an enthusiastic group of students from Glen Crest Middle School in Glen Ellyn! These 16 students and their teachers volunteered two hours of their time this afternoon, to also sort food that will be going to the needy families served by our Christmas Offering. We want to thank this group of lively volunteers for the great work they did, and Craig Hoffman, for organizing the event! We also want to acknowledge our volunteers Jeff Marker and Mike Bolsoni who volunteered their time to help show these groups around our warehouse.

The work of these two great volunteer groups has allowed us to make strong progress in our Christmas Offering preparations. With not only the 150 families receiving 250 pounds of groceries, but also, at least, 1200 needy children and 121 needy senior citizens receiving gifts through the project, there are numerous ways you too can help out.
