The first full week of 2014 ended on a very happy note at
thanks to a visit from our friends, Lori Heggen’s class from Glenbard South
High School. Ms. Heggen and her class have been coming in regularly over the
past several months generously volunteering their time to help us serve needy
senior citizens and families. Today they spent nearly two hours in our
warehouse diligently sorting paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, and
facial tissue) which will be distributed to the 123 impoverished seniors enrolled
in our Senior Citizen Project. The support they lent today will certainly go a
long way in making an impact in the lives of these seniors!
The students of Ms. Heggen’s class are part of a transitional program run at Glenbard South that teaches vocational and everyday skills by engaging in community service and other activities. They have graciously signed up to volunteer at the HSP Center about once a month. We at HSP wish to thank them giving their time today, and look forward to seeing them again soon.
The paper products that Ms. Heggen’s class sorted are a very important part of the monthly grocery deliveries HSP provides to the 123 needy seniors we serve each month. Currently, HSP is running low on toilet paper for these seniors. If you, like these great volunteers from Glenbard South, are looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of needy seniors, donating toilet paper would be a great way to do it!
