The Joy In Hosting Volunteers and Donors

Many helpful hands and cheerful spirits have come and help out at HSP this holiday season.  HSP is blessed and overjoyed to host so many quality volunteers to help us better serve the needy in the community. Yesterday, Naperville Neighbors and Newcomers Club helped sort potatoes and onions; as well as, set up boxes that help to help us prepare for this coming Saturday. They also, graciously brought in a few toys, and HSP will be a beneficiary of their charity luncheon later this month.  We also had the pleasure of hosting a group from Philips Healthcare, who contributed time sorting toys in the warehouse, and helped prepare out warehouse for the Christmas Boxing Party, also this upcoming Saturday. We want to thank these groups for the time they volunteered here at HSP.

 In addition to volunteers, HSP has also had the pleasure of hosting numerous donors, who have generously brought in donations to help us serve needy senior citizens and families this Christmas. Yesterday, Americo Chemical Dropped off giving trees going to 97 different children this Christmas. A group of students Giant Steps school in Lisle also came bearing gifts yesterday, with each student providing a toy donation for the Christmas offering. The supervisors of each Kindercare center in DuPage County came in and gave another donation yesterday; they dropped off a van full of greatly appreciated selections of new winter coats, mittens, hats, scarves, and clothes.  We want to thank these groups for their generous donations.
We have many donations and volunteers that help make the services we provide possible; and, this is only but a sample of the gracious individuals and organizations that have given their thought, time, and effort to the needy families and seniors in DuPage and Kane counties. HSP is thankful to all who have participated in giving hope to these families at HSP and we encourage our supporters to continue to partner with us to better serve needy seniors and families in our community.
