The Needy Senior Gift Delivery Day!

Nancy Bagadonas, one of our volunteer drivers.

It’s an exciting day here at The Humanitarian Service Project, as today is the Christmas Gift Delivery Day for the 121 needy seniors enrolled in our Senior Citizen Project. Throughout the day, gifts have been rolling out the door, with the destination being the homes of the needy seniors thanks to the 27 volunteer drivers, who have thoughtfully given their time and energy to deliver these gifts.

            We would also like to recognize all the donors who went above and beyond this year in provided so many heartfelt gifts for our seniors. We specifically want to recognize Divine Savior Parish in Downers Grove, who provided a gift for each of the 121 needy seniors served by the project. Acknowledgement is also certainly in order, for Ginna Ericksen, our volunteer Secret Pal Coordinator, whose help organizing the gifts for all the seniors , has been instrumental in making this a great success. Other volunteers we’d like to specifically recognize today are friends of the project Jesse Bower and Dean Senne, who have helped load up our volunteer drivers today.

            The seniors are all very thankful for the gifts. We have already received calls from a number of seniors who wished to thank all who took part in bringing items of love into their homes.  All of us here at HSP wish to echo the seniors’ gratitude, and thank everyone who helped us share gifts and the Christmas spirit with these needy senior citizens.
