HSP’s Christmas Roundup

While this may look like a sea of gifts, 
thanks to our supporters, HSP distributed 
several times this amount of gifts through 
the Christmas Offering this year!
With the dust settled from the Christmas Offering, we at HSP wanted to take this time to update all of our supporters on how it went. Thanks to the assistance of everyone who volunteered their time or donated food, gifts, toys or money, this year’s Christmas Offering was the largest ever. While a few needy families will still be dropping in the next few days to pick up the last remaining gifts, we have already distributed gifts to over 1750 impoverished children. On top of reaching so many needy children with gifts, we also distributed over 20 tons of nutritious groceries to families, and gifts to 125 needy senior citizens!

 With months of preparation going into the program, so many people contributed to the success of the Christmas Offering through volunteering, providing monetary support, or conducting food/ toy drives. In fact, we’ve still had generous donations coming in this week, including a whole trunk load of toys donated by our neighbors the Western DuPage Special Recreation Association, and a whole van full of gifts from Aurora Fire Station #12.

We want to thank the hundreds of supporters who helped make Christmas Offering 2013 so successful. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to not only provide gifts and much needed groceries, but also spread the spirit of compassion and joy to the neediest members of our communities.
