HSP Thanks Two Hardworking Groups of Volunteers

On this beautiful summer day Humanitarian Service Project (HSP) was delighted to have to very joyful groups of volunteers. The hardworking employees of the Liberty Mutual Insurance Company and a sweet group of middle school aged girls from First Presbyterian Church contributed parts of their day to helping our very needy seniors and families.

The first group of volunteers were employees from the Liberty Mutual Insurance Company in Warrenville. Liberty Mutual has volunteered with HSP in the past. Today they brought along 11 volunteers as apart of their “Serve with Liberty” program. This program allows their employees to go out into their communities and volunteer at a place of their choice. The volunteers started off their day with us by creating 100, 25 lbs, boxes of non perishables for our Feed the Kids program that runs through the summer months of June, July, and August. When they were done boxing non-perishables they moved their focus to helping us sort through non perishables and frozen meats for both our families in the Feed the Kids project and our seniors in the Senior Citizen Project. In addition, they did a fantastic job of helping us organize our freezer in the HSP warehouse. We are grateful for all their hard work today and look forward to seeing them again next year.

The second group of 6 volunteers were middle school girls from First Presbyterian Church in Wheaton. These girls are part of Vacation Bible School (VBS) that occurs through their church for a week each summer. As a part of their program they spent an hour of their day today with us. In addition, they brought us 3 tubs of non-perishables weighing 95lbs each which will be a tremendous help towards our needy seniors monthly grocery deliveries. We are thankful for all of their tremendous help today and we hope to see them again soon.

Again, HSP would like to thank today’s volunteers for all of their hard work. HSP is always looking for more volunteers. If you or your group is interested in volunteering at HSP, please give us a call at 630-221-8340 or email us at hsp@humanitarianservice.org
