Thank You UPS Volunteers!

Tomorrow HSP will be ending this warm week on an exciting note week with our monthly Senior Delivery Day. We would like to thank our wonderful volunteers who helped us prepare for tomorrow’s event sorting fresh produce and Pepperidge Farm bread to be delivered to the seniors. We would like to thank a group of seven volunteers from UPS Supply Chain Solutions in Carol Stream, who volunteered for 3 hours working in our warehouse. This hardworking and enthusiastic group was ready to help in any way. UPS SCS regularly volunteer for our produce sorting days and have been steadfast supporters of HSP.

            Every month HSP delivers a total of over 6 tons of nutritious groceries, the 121 needy seniors in the project, each received 100 lbs. of greatly needed, nutritious groceries. These 100 lb. packages include 15 varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables, 3 loaves of Pepperidge Farm bread, 6 bags of non-perishables, 7 frozen meats, 2 bags of paper products, personal care items and a gift from their “secret pal.” You can imagine it takes many people to make this happen. Volunteer produce sorters, like these thoughtful and hardworking UPS volunteers, are just one of the important groups that help HSP make this happen every month. Again, we want to thank them for taking time out of their busy days to help us reach out to seniors in need. There are so many ways to get involved to assist HSP in making a big difference in the lives of needy seniors in our community. If you would be interested in lending a hand, you can learn more about these opportunities on our website:
