Volunteer with HSP and Have a Blast at the Ribfest!

              Come out and volunteer for HSP at the Exchange Club of Naperville’s Ribfest. This is a community fundraiser, which benefits local agencies working towards the elimination of child abuse, domestic violence, and the affects of poverty on children.  Over the years, the Exchange Club of Naperville has raised millions of dollars that were given back to the Naperville and the surrounding communities.  
            The Ribfest is right around the corner, starting on July 3rd and ending on July 7th. This annual event raises funds for a number of local charities, including our very own Humanitarian Service Project! A portion of the money given to HSP will be determined by the amount of volunteers who sign up for the event to represent HSP. The more volunteers we get, the more money we receive to serve the needy children and families in our summertime Feed the Kids program!
            For a successful Ribfest this year, they are looking for a great number of volunteers to come out and help. Ribfest will need up to 1,000 people each day.
            Volunteers can sign up to work six hour shifts either serving in the beverage tent, manning the event’s entrance gates, helping in the children’s play area, and much more! There are many opportunities for all ages and volunteers should plan to work an entire shift. Volunteer shifts are 11:00am-5:00pm and 4:00pm-10:00pm everyday except on July 3rd with only one shift 3:00pm-10:00pm. Volunteer sign up is now open, so sign up as soon as possible because selective positions and time slots go fast. If you wish to sign up, call HSP at 630-221-8340 or email us at Go out there and represent our HSP at this exciting and fun event.
            Along with that, all the volunteers receive a free volunteer T-shirt and free admission into the park the day they are volunteering. In addition, get to enjoy some of the great bands that will be performing like STYX, Casey James, Love & Theft, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators, Rick Springfield and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
