Christmas Offering Begins Tomorrow!

Kindercare Volunteers
Today is a very exciting and busy day for HSP as we make the final preparations for tomorrow –the first Distribution Day of the Christmas Offering! Tomorrow, 150 needy families will receive Christmas gifts and 250 lbs of food each. These families will be coming to our center throughout the day tomorrow as HSP’s staff and volunteers load their cars with this joyous holiday bounty.

Several volunteer groups are coming in today to help get everything completely ready. Volunteers from Kindercare, Chubb Insurance Group, and Girl Scout Troup 1873, helped with tasks such as sorting the fresh produce to go to impoverished families, as well as food and gift sorting.
In addition to the exciting preparations for tomorrow, we are also delivering Christmas gifts to 163 needy children at Lake Park Elementary School in Addison. Many of Lake Park’s students live in poverty and are served by our Children’s Birthday Project throughout the year. Today, we are distributing Christmas gifts for these needy children at the school.
