T-Minus Two Days to the Christmas Offering

With the first distribution of our Christmas Offering only two short days away, things are certainly busy here at HSP. Thankfully a number of wonderful volunteers have graciously lent their assistance over the past couple of days, to help us prepare. We’d like to take this opportunity to recognize volunteer groups who took the time to aid us in spreading joy to the needy seniors, children, and families served by the program.

Yesterday, we hosted three great volunteer groups in our warehouse. In the morning, four volunteers from the Theosophical Society in Wheaton helped us sort and organize Christmas gifts that will be distributed to needy children over the next couple weeks. In the early afternoon, they were joined by three volunteers from Journeycare, a nonprofit hospice service. Later on, we had six volunteers from our friends at Insight Inc. in Bloomingdale, who helped us set up our warehouse with the gifts and over 18 tons of nutritious food that will be distributed to 150 needy families this Saturday.

The excitement continued today with two volunteer groups lending their support to our program as well. These six volunteers from the Schaumburg office of Colorado Technical Institute came in this morning, and nine volunteers from Hitachi joined us this afternoon. These great groups helped us sort and load up Christmas gifts for the needy children we serve at Lake Park Elementary school in Addison. These gifts will be delivered to Lake Park Elementary tomorrow to be given out to the children.

This year is shaping up to be HSP’s biggest Christmas Offering ever! We want to thank these great volunteer groups, and everyone else who has supported our Christmas Offering, for helping us make a difference in the lives of the neediest members of our communities!
