Two Phenomenal Volunteer Groups Visit HSP

Already in the spirit of giving, we’ve had volunteer groups from Philips Healthcare, based in Roselle, and the DuPage division of Junior Achievement of Chicago donate their time to HSP.  They helped us prepare boxes of non-perishables that will be delivered to impoverished families in DuPage and Kane Counties through our Christmas Offering.
            Yesterday we welcomed a group of 16 volunteers who graciously gave their time because of Philips’ inter-company service program.  Requiring every employee to give back to the community, regional managers and office staff from Philips offices all over the Midwest came out to help HSP get ready for Delivery Day.  Drawing on their slogan of “Innovation that matters to you”, our volunteers from Philips Healthcare certainly did work that matters to people in need.

            Our second group of volunteers work for a non-profit that aims to teach kids valuable business skills, financial literacy, and work readiness.  Thanks to business professionals who donate their time, Junior Achievement of Chicago provides their services free of charge to children in grades K-12.  Serving the same DuPage County community as HSP, one of their staff thought it would be a good idea to get out of the office and do some volunteer work themselves.  Just like HSP, Junior Achievement is always looking for volunteers, so if you have any business know-how visit them online at www.jachicago.org

            HSP would like to again thank these groups for their dedicated service and valuable time!

            During the Christmas season, we here at HSP are always looking for volunteers, specifically during the first few weeks of December, so if you or your group would like to come help at our center, please give us a call at (630) 221-8340 to set up a time to volunteer.
