Thank You Produce Sorters

HSP would like to extend a big Thank You to everyone who responded to our call for volunteers, to help us sort fresh produce today for the 121 needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. We had several friends of the Project graciously take time out of their day to sort out the 15 varieties of Fresh Fruits and Vegetables, as well as the Pepperidge Farm bread that will be delivered to each senior tomorrow. One of the major goals of the Senior Citizen Project is to provide impoverished seniors access to vitamin-rich food that they cannot afford to purchase for themselves. However, in order to do this, it is important to deliver them the freshest produce possible; which HSP is only able to provide thanks to the generosity of volunteers like these who took time out of their day to help us get all this produce organized.

The produce will be delivered to the Needy Seniors tomorrow during HSP’s first, monthly Delivery Day of the year. On these Delivery Days, each senior receives a 100 lb. Grocery Package which includes not only the 15 varieties of Fresh Fruits and Vegetables, but also 3 loaves of Pepperidge Farm bread, 7 frozen meats, 6 bags of Non-Perishables, 2 bags of Paper Products, Personal Care Items, and a Gift from their “Secret Pal.” In addition to Volunteer Produce Sorters, there are many other volunteers who contribute to the success of these monthly events including, Volunteer Drivers, Car Loaders, our weekly Monday Morning Food Sorting Team, and many more. If you too would like to help HSP make an impact in the lives of 121 needy, local seniors, check out our website for more info:
