The Results are in

Donated boxes of food from Gower Middle School.
One week after wrapping up the Feinstein Challenge, we would once again like to give a huge thank you to everyone who supported us during the months of March and April. Through your donations, we are receiving grant money directly from the Feinstein Foundation proportionate to the amount of food donated. This grant will go toward helping local needy families and seniors.
We are pleased to announce during the past two months, HSP collected a grand total of 31,022 lbs of food! To put that in perspective: that’s the equivalent of five and a half months’ worth of non-perishable food to feed all 123 of our seniors enrolled in the Senior Citizen Project.
Our appreciation goes out to the churches, businesses, schools, and many individual donors who made the time during the Feinstein Challenge such a successful period. Your contributions, as always, make a huge difference in the lives of the families involved with HSP.
Today, we would also like to recognize the Gower Middle School student council in Burr Ridge, who responded to our food drive call. We received eight boxes yesterday full of non-perishables. With Feed The Kids starting next month, every single canned good counts.

Thank you again for all of your support!
