Waubonsie Valley High School Goes on a “Tear” with Paper Drive Donation

Yesterday, Waubonsie Valley High School in Aurora gave the Humanitarian Service Project a huge donation of paper products for the sake of the needy seniors enrolled in our Senior Citizen Project. The school-wide drive was sponsored by the Student Council, who reached out to staff and their fellow students to donate paper towels, tissues, and toilet paper.  Paper products are important because they provide a way for the seniors to maintain proper hygiene. These products were picked up at Waubonsie by HSP’s volunteers Mike Reich and Larry Erven.  Upon arriving at the school, the students helped load the vans with the collected products, which was quite a good thing due to the size of the drive. Waubonsie had such an incredible turnout for the drive, that they literally stuffed HSP’s two cargo vans to their brims with paper products. 
The school also did a large and generous paper drive last year, and HSP thinks that this year’s paper donation exceeds the mark Waubonsie set previously. 
When it was all said and done, 4 large cardboard lugs were overflowing with the paper goods, in our warehouse.  There was so much from the Waubonsie donation that HSP needed an additional pallet to hold the entirety of the donation.

We here at HSP are grateful for Waubonsie’s generous donation of paper products. HSP thanks all of the students and volunteers who helped make Waubonsie’s paper product drive so successful for a second consecutive year.
