New Year = New Opportunities for Service

All of us at HSP arrived to work today to see the HSP Center looking like a regular winter wonderland. The clean white landscape surrounding HSP feels like the perfect image for the New Year, a pure, clean slate. As we look forward to another exciting year of serving the needy in our communities, we would love share some ways that those of you who are interested in helping those in need can get involved in 2014.

HSP’s Children’s Birthday Project was recently featured in the January issue of Woman’s World magazine, who thoughtfully let their readers know that we accept donations of wrapping paper to wrap gifts for the 925 impoverished children served by the project. There are several other ways of getting involved in this program as well, including signing up to wrap gifts for the children, collecting and donating toys or books, or even making packages of party supplies called “party-in-a-bag kits” to help the kids celebrate in style. If getting involved in helping needy children is something you’d like to do in 2014, you can learn more on our website:

Opportunities also abound for HSP’s other year-round project, the Senior Citizen Project. In addition to providing non-perishable food or monetary support to assist us in providing nutritious food and other support to 123 needy seniors, you can: sign up to be a secret pal and provide a senior a $5-$25 gift of items they need each month, or participate as a volunteer driver or loader for our monthly delivery days. For more information about how to get engaged with helping the needy seniors we serve, check here:

There will be dozens of more ways to get involved with serving the needy at HSP this year including our Feed the Kids and School Supply Drive programs in the summer, our Christmas Offering next December, and a number of other fun annual events. As always, we wish to thank everyone who helped us make a difference in the lives of needy seniors, children, and families in 2013, and we look forward to seeing many of you in 2014!
