Thank You, United Stationers!

          Today has been an exciting and busy day at Humanitarian Service Project as we prepare for Senior Citizen Project Delivery Day tomorrow! We were blessed by a group of volunteers from United Stationers. They have been steadfast supporters of HSP, and have helped our organization in a variety of ways. Today, they sorted fifteen varieties of produce and different kinds of bread into boxes to be delivered to the seniors tomorrow. They worked enthusiastically for 2 hours and filled all the boxes of produce, one for each senior in the program. We couldn’t have done it without them, and their generous efforts ensure that the needy seniors in our program will receive the nutritious food they need.

          Tomorrow at Delivery Day, more volunteers will load these boxes of produce, as well as non-perishables, seven frozen meats, paper products, a gift from the senior’s “secret pal,” and a personal care kit into the cars of our volunteer drivers. Volunteers are absolutely essential to the success of the Senior Citizen Project, and we want to thank everyone for helping out.

            In addition to this excitement, we also delivered a supply of bread to Lake Park Elementary School. The school is in an area with high levels of poverty; about 90% of the children at the school come from low-income families that qualify for subsidized lunches. HSP donates loaves of bread whenever we can to give to the needy children to take home.
