HSP Salutes our “Secret Pals”

With the March Delivery Day to the needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project just a week and a half away, the HSP office has been receiving a number of visits from a group who help us make these deliveries special; our “secret pals.” Each “secret pal” is a donor who provides a small gift to one of the 123 impoverished seniors in our program each month. These gifts range from between $5 - $25 and generally consist of items the seniors need (like laundry detergent, dish soap, light bulbs, etc.) or fun gifts to brighten the senior’s days (like books, gift cards, puzzles, etc.)

Every month, we at HSP are delighted to see all the wonderful and thoughtful gifts the secret pals bring in to help us reach out to the needy seniors in our program, and wish to thank them so much for their generosity. The seniors in our program certainly echo our gratitude. Recently one of our seniors called HSP asking us to send a message to her secret pal saying, “I want you to know how much I truly appreciate your lovely gifts. Your generosity has warmed my heart, and you such a giving and wonderful person!”

Currently we have nine seniors who are without secret pals. If bringing smiles and joy to a needy senior through this program seems like something you’d be interested in, please contact HSP at 630-221-8340.
