Fruitful Friday Thanks to Lake Park High Transitions

The first full week of February ended on a high note at HSP thanks to a visit from our friends at Lake Park High School’s Transitions program. Eleven volunteers from the program spent two hours in our warehouse today, lending much appreciated support by helping us sort non-perishable food for the needy seniors we serve. These students and staff from the Transitions program spend every Friday engaged in helping the community, and we are very happy to have hosted them today. We wish to thank these volunteers for generously giving their time to help us serve local seniors in need.

Every month, HSP provides over six tons of groceries to 123 impoverished senior citizens living in DuPage and Kane. With all that food going out HSP needs not only volunteers, like this wonderful group from Lake Park High, but also community members interested in helping us by conducting food drives. In fact, much of the food sorted by the Lake Park group was donated by our friends at Benet Academy in Lisle, and the parishioners of Divine Savior Parish in Downers Grove. If you too would like to help HSP give this life altering support to needy seniors, you can learn more at our website:
