Spring into Action with HSP!

Volunteers on Delivery Day.
This past Saturday, HSP participated in three amazing events to help benefit the communities of the DuPage and Kane counties. Every month, HSP spearheads a Delivery Day to ensure each of the 123 seniors in our Senior Citizen Project receives 100 pounds of fresh groceries, and Saturday was the big day! With the help of our fabulously efficient volunteers, Delivery Day went by smoothly.
Volunteers at NJWC's Hoppy Easter event.
Our friends from the Naperville Junior Woman’s Club debuted their Hoppy Easter event on Saturday as well. We extend our congratulations on their great success in turning out tons of families to participate in all the fun and helping to support HSP and Safety Town. Kristin Maxwell, Bridget Dooley, and Nancy Dorsman represented HSP, and reported having nothing but a good time. The three received the food and monetary donations for HSP from the families that attended this awesome event. We extend our sincerest thanks and appreciation to the NJWC, and wish them all the success in hosting this event again next year!

Food donated at the Carol Stream Community Food Drive.
The third big event held on Saturday was the Carol Stream Community Food Drive hosted by the Rotary Club of Carol Stream. Like the NJWC event, this function was also incredibly successful. HSP was one of three local organizations who received the food collected in this event, and we were floored by the amount of food that the residents of Carol Stream generously contributed. We packed our two cargo vans full of food, in addition to volunteer Dean Senne’s SUV. We are so thankful to receive such outstanding support from the Rotary Club, Carol Stream community, and Glenbard North volunteers.
