Twas the Day Before the Boxing Party (And Senior Delivery Day)

           The excitement continues here at HSP as we prepare for tomorrow’s Boxing Party and Senior Delivery Day and carry on with Christmas Offering preparations.  To help us prepare, a number of volunteers have contributed their time at the center today. 
            Among them was a group from Kia Motors of America and Initiative (a partnered ad agency of Kia).  The twenty-two volunteers spent their time sorting produce in preparation for tomorrow’s senior deliver day and helping with giving tree donations intake.  Their three and a half hours of work went a long way in helping us prepare for the eventful weeks that lay ahead of us!
            Two additional groups joining us today come from US Cellular and the Bloomingdale-Roselle Rotary Club.  The groups each consisted of eight people and volunteered five hours cumulatively.  They too helped process the intake of hundreds of giving trees and gift sorting. 
            The help of all of these groups, and the other various volunteers that contributed their time today played an essential role in preparing for tomorrow’s Boxing Party and Senior Citizen Delivery Day.  At the Boxing Party, we will be doing a final organization of all the gifts for the first group of families we are serving.  This includes sorting the gifts, checking that the gifts are complete and adding to any that aren’t and then bundling them by family to ensure easy distribution on December 14th and 17th

   Thank you again to all of the wonderful volunteers that helped out today!
