Thank You Glenbard South Volunteers

Today the Humanitarian Service Project was fortunate enough to receive some great assistance from a group of 10 volunteers from Glenbard South High School’s Special Education program. This group of students and teachers kindly spent two hours of their day sorting bread into categories: (rye, wheat, white, cinnamon, bagels, hamburger and hot dog buns,) and non-perishables for the needy seniors served by our Senior Citizen Project. The Glenbard South volunteers sorted a whole month’s worth of bread for the 121 seniors in this program and several hundred pounds of non-perishables as well. We wish to thank them for their hard work.

Lori Heggen, a special education teacher at Glenbard South, let us know that she and her students volunteered their time with us today as part of the “Community Based Instruction” component of their curriculum. A key part of Community Based Instruction is teaching the students about ways they can actively participate in serving the needy of the community. We at HSP are grateful that Lori and her students decided to spend some of this Community Based Instruction time enabling us to provide greatly needed relief to the impoverished seniors in our program.

With the preparation for our Feed the Kids program starting soon, HSP will need more hard working and enthusiastic volunteer groups, like this one, for the sake of the needy seniors, children, and families we serve. If you have a group interested in volunteering on a weekday from May 20th onward, please call HSP at 630-221-8340.
