These past two days
has been blessed to have not one but two churches generously donate supplies
for the needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. We are so thankful for the
dedication and work that other organizations give to help us make a better community
in which to live.
in Corpus Christi Church Carol Stream brought in a car load of food from their
annual food drive! This drive is spearheaded by the churches “Council of
Catholic Woman”, they have generously donated to HSP
for three consecutive summers. Corpus Christi’s
Council of Catholic Woman specifically runs the drive. They collected nine
boxes and five bags filled with non-perishables.
The second generous group was from St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in Lemont. This group came in both to volunteer and brought in a donation. Their donation comprised of a car filled with items specifically requested by our seniors, like personal care products, stamps, pillows and even some appliances. When they came in with the donation three volunteers from St. Alphonsus’ woman’s club happily spent time creating bags of food for the seniors that have special diets to be delivered this Saturday and creating meat packages for our Feed the Kids program.
