Delivering the Gift of Compassion

            This Saturday, March 22, was HSP’s monthly senior delivery day. The deliveries went very well thanks to the many volunteer loaders and drivers who took time from their busy schedules to deliver the much needed groceries to the 123 seniors in the Senior Citizen Project. Each senior receives 100lbs of groceries, which will help sustain them through the coming month. The Humanitarian Service Project sends our thanks to the many volunteers who helped make this delivery day a success.
            Just as exciting, HSP also had a very special visit from the Pi-Beta-Phi Alumnae of the Glen Ellyn/Wheaton area, a woman’s service fraternity that focuses their philanthropic efforts on literacy. Pi-Beta-Phi applied for a donation of books from First Book and received 500 free books which were donated to HSP, a greatly appreciated donation. They came by on Saturday, the same day as delivery day, and dropped off the books before meeting with HSP Executive Director Kristin Maxwell and receiving a tour of the HSP facility. Here at HSP, we are very grateful for their donation and hope work with Pi-Beta-Phi Alumnae again soon.
