Pleasantdale Gives Back

The 100 boxes of non-perishables sorted by
 the Pleasantdale volunteers
            With our Feed the Kids program just around the corner, we at HSP are grateful that so many volunteers have generously given their time to help us serve those in need. Today we had the pleasure of working with Kay Lewellyan and her students from Pleasantdale Middle School, who helped us by sorting non-perishables for needy families served by the program.  

            For almost 18 years, HSP has received support from Pleasantdale’s students. They regularly volunteer to help us serve needy families through both Feed the Kids as well as the Christmas Offering in December. Today a group of students along with their teachers spent the morning in the warehouse sorting non-perishable food for families.

            Our first Feed the Kids distribution this year will take place on June 11th. Families signed up for the program will stop by during the day to collect a month worth of groceries. In total, HSP provides approximately 175 pounds of groceries to over 375 children. The food sorted by the Pleasantdale students will help those families receive the nutrition they need during the summer.  

            If you would like to donate or organize a group to volunteer at HSP, please contact us at 630-221-8340.
