Forget Jay-Z or Macklemore--These Castrol Employees are the Best Wrappers Around!

Castrol Industrial "Wrap Stars" hard at work
At HSP, we continuously give thanks for the many volunteers that help us carry out our projects. Yesterday, we were once again grateful for the help of gracious volunteers, this time from Castrol Industrial. The corporation, which is headquartered in Naperville, held their North American Sales Conference this week at the Naperville Marriott. As part of the conference, the employees spend some of their time doing service in the community. Over forty Castrol Industrial employees wrapped gifts for the needy children of the Children’s Birthday Project! HSP is honored that Castrol chose to serve us. Our lovely staff member Bridget Dooley and volunteer driver Bill Fehling took HSP on the road to the Naperville Marriott, where Castrol employees eagerly got to work, wrapping gifts quickly and beautifully, like a well-oiled machine. They even donated the extra wrapping supplies when they finished!

While they worked, Bridget talked to the employees about HSP’s programs, including the Children’s Birthday Project. CBP serves around 925 needy children by giving them everything needed for a great birthday: 6-10 new toys and games, 6 books, school supplies, and a Party in a Bag kit with all the supplies for a birthday party. The Children’s Birthday Project can only happen because of volunteers like the Castrol Industrial employees, who donate their time and wrapping supplies. Thank you, Castrol Industrial, for your excellent service!
