Earlier this week,
HSP welcomed visitors from our friends at the Carol Stream Woman’s Club.
These longtime supporters dropped in to deliver their $800 donation to HSP to continue the club’s
sponsorship of one of the impoverished seniors in the Senior Citizen
Project. The Woman’s Club, currently
headed by President Nancy Bagdonas, has been supporting HSP’s mission through an
enduring partnership dating back to 1991.
Over these past twenty years, the women have committed to annually
sponsoring a senior, and have additionally made generous donations of food and
paper supplies for the seniors and school supplies for the children.
The sponsorships made by groups like the Carol Stream Woman’s Club go a long way in helping
HSP serve the 123 senior citizens currently enrolled in HSP’s Senior Citizen Project.
Needy seniors enrolled in the program receive
monthly deliveries of personal care items, paper products and 100 lbs. of
groceries, consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen meats,
non-perishables and Pepperidge Farm bread. The seniors also receive a monthly “Secret
Pal” gift, gifts at Christmas time, and other individually requested
