Today volunteers from Clarke Environmental and UPS helped prepare for tomorrow’s Delivery Day. Clarke is a global environmental products and service company whose mission is to make communities more comfortable and safe. Six volunteers from Clarke offered their assistance, and helped sort bread and produce for tomorrow’s delivery. Clarke regularly lends a hand at Christmas time, so we were happy to have them here.
They were joined by our friends at UPS Supply Chain Solutions in Carol Stream. These volunteers regularly help us the day before delivery that serves 123 seniors in the Senior Citizen Project. These seniors will be receiving a 100 lb. package of fresh produce, groceries, and paper products to sustain them for the next month.
Delivery Day preparation was not the only activity at HSP today; the staff celebrated one of their own, Bridget Dooley! Today is Bridget’s birthday, and the staff enjoyed a little party in honor of her special day. Bridget is the administrative assistant who has many responsibilities but still makes time to greet every visitor with a smile. She does so much to touch the lives of others, and HSP would like to wish her a very happy birthday, and know that her work is greatly appreciated!
