Clarke Volunteers Have Things all Wrapped Up

This week, HSP has been blessed to have two volunteer groups from Clarke Environmental come in to wrap gifts for the needy children we serve. Two Clarke employees joined us on Tuesday, and three spent their time today wrapping toys that will be a part of the 20-25 lb. “Birthday Boxes” for the 925 impoverished children in our Children’s Birthday Project. These groups brought their own wrapping supplies, and diligently spent several hours each carefully wrapping gifts for the kids. Clarke’s employees have previously lent their support by volunteering for our Christmas Offering program in December. Most recently, many volunteers from Clarke generously gave their time distributing gifts and groceries to needy families on one of our Christmas Offering distribution days last month. We are thankful for the heartfelt assistance our friends at Clarke have given for the sake of the impoverished children and families we serve, and we were very happy to host them this week.

Providing gifts to 925 needy children each year means there sure are A LOT of gifts to wrap. Usually, most of the wrapping for our Children’s Birthday Project happens outside of the HSP Center as volunteers pick up gifts for needy children, wrap, and then return them to be distributed. It is only one of the many opportunities we at HSP have to get engaged in helping needy kids.
