Two Generous Drives from Local Schools Came in Yesterday!

             Yesterday HSP received donations from two local high schools, Downers Grove South High School and the Spanish Honors Society of Geneva High School. Both schools expressed their dedication to reaching out to the community. The HSP team is excited to add the donated items to packages that are sent out monthly to seniors in need.

            The first donation received was from Downers Grove South. They have been a steadfast supporter of HSP and contribute greatly through food drives. Yesterday, Jay Baum, a teacher and basketball coach at Downers Grove South, dropped off 12 boxes and 4 bags full of nonperishable items, which were collected by students. They have done a lot for HSP recently and we appreciate all of their efforts. We are thankful for their willingness to provide items and donations so we can better serve needy seniors. Thank you, Downers Grove South, for your continuous support and donations!

            Our second donation came from the Spanish Honors Society of Geneva High School. Gina Nolan, a teacher at Geneva, dropped off paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, and Kleenex), which filled the trunk and back seat of her car. A few of the paper products are pictured to the right. Geneva High School responded to our need for more paper products for our Senior Program, which we are very excited about! HSP thanks the Spanish Honors Society of Geneva High School for responding to our need for paper products and for your generous donation.               

                Everyone at HSP is thankful for all the time and work that went into planning a drive to collect food and paper products. HSP is fortunate to have local schools that are eager and willing to respond to the call of action. In addition to donations, HSP looks for volunteers for our other projects. If you are interested in volunteering your time at HSP or donating, please contact us by email at, or call us at (630)221-8340.
