Thanks to the YMSL

Yesterday HSP hosted 18 boys and moms from the Carol Stream “Panther” Chapter of the Young Men’s Service League (YMSL.) This volunteer group spent over two hours in our warehouse yesterday afternoon sorting bread for the needy senior citizens and families we serve. The YMSL have dedicated themselves to assisting HSP reach out to those suffering under poverty in our communities, and have been very thoughtful and prolific volunteers. In fact, the volunteer event yesterday was the third time YMSL volunteers came to help out this month! We also hosted YMSL volunteers on November 8th and 11th who helped sort food for the needy families we will be serving through our Christmas Offering.

The Young Men’s Service League is an organization in which mothers and teenaged sons work together to engage in “meaningful community work.” The Carol Stream Young Men’s Service League Chapter have definitely accomplished this goal through all that they have done to help us meet the needs of the impoverished seniors, children, and families we serve!

            Being deep in the preparation stage of our Christmas Offering, it was great having these wonderful YMSL volunteers helping out. We still have a few volunteer spots open in the months of December. If you are interested in helping HSP provide wonderful Christmas memories to needy children and seniors, like YMSL, call or email HSP at 630-221-8340 or hsp@humanitarianservice.org.
