Today HSP made its first delivery of the school year to Lake Park Elementary! Lake Park Elementary and HSP have been Children’s Birthday Project partners since February of 2012. Through this partnership HSP provides birthday boxes to the neediest children enrolled at the school. With roughly 90% of Lake Park students receiving government subsidized meals at school, the need is very great!
Today’s delivery contained birthday boxes for 18 children with birthdays in the month of September. Each birthday box includes a 20-25 pound package containing 6-10 toys, 6 books, numerous smaller “filler gifts,” school supplies, and all of the supplies necessary to hold a memorable birthday party.
HSP would like to extend big thank you to volunteer Dean Senne for delivering the birthday boxes! We truly appreciate his help and support!
It is the support of volunteers like Dean that has enabled HSP to make a difference in the lives of the needy children at Lake Park Elementary, as well as all of the other children served by our project.
