Thanks to South Outreach

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘What are you doing for others?’” On this MLK Day, ten young, volunteers from Wheaton Warrenville South High School, are honoring these wise words by spending their day helping others. These ten students belong to the school’s South Outreach Club, a club devoted to raising awareness and making a difference in the lives of those affected by poverty or violence. These South Outreach volunteers spent two hours during their day off, sorting food that will be distributed to the 123 local, impoverished seniors enrolled in our Senior Citizen Project. We wish to these volunteers for helping us reach out to these seniors in need.

Every month, HSP delivers more than six tons of groceries to the needy seniors in our program. This past Saturday just happened to be the first monthly delivery of the year, and, thanks to these volunteers from South Outreach, we already have a leg up on preparing for next month. It takes the generous support of many volunteers, like this great group from Wheaton Warrenville South, to make these deliveries happen.
