We’re starting this week with supreme gratitude to everyone who donated to HSP, helping us to fulfill our mission of aiding the neediest children and seniors in our community. We would like to recognize Lincoln Jr. High in Naperville for their awesome support. On May 29th, they donated 300 packs of loose leaf paper for impoverished kids. They then returned on Friday, June 6th, with a whole van load of school supplies, including paper, binders, notebooks, and locker shelves! Lincoln Jr. High helped HSP get a great early start for the School Supply Drive. This program accepts donations of unused school supplies, and we are looking for items like backpacks, crayons/markers, notebooks, colored folders, pens, etc.
HSP also received a generous donation from Divine Savior Parish in Downers Grove. They are one of our most dedicated supporters, helping HSP for more than two decades! Every few months, they host a food drive for the needy seniors enrolled in HSP’s Senior Citizen Project. Over the weekend, the parishioners from Divine Savior collected a full carload of food. Today, our wonderful volunteer, Mark Pierce, picked up the donation boxes. These food donations will help benefit many needy seniors in our community!
Without the help of our donors, HSP wouldn’t be the organization that it is today. We wholeheartedly thank everyone who has donated supplies and food, helping to support the children and seniors who need it the most.
