Happy Birthdays All Around

     Today was filled with birthday fun here at HSP! It was a very special day for one of HSP’s wonderful employees. Matt, HSP’s Grant Manager, celebrated his birthday today. His actual birthday is Sunday, but what better way to celebrate a 26th birthday than at work among colleagues and friends. From everyone here at HSP happy birthday Matt!
   On the topic of birthdays, interns Matthew and Nicole once again ventured to the McDonald’s headquarters to explain the Children’s Birthday Project to a group of young volunteers. This was a “Helping Hands” event put on by the Working Mothers Council. These volunteers were children of the staff at McDonald’s, and their job was to put together a “Party in a Bag”. The bags consist of all the elements needed to give impoverished families the means to throw their children the party they deserve. The kids packed the bags full of candles, napkins, plates, balloons, noise makers, streamers, cake mix, frosting, and a table cloth. The children were dedicated and worked at a quick pace to complete the bags to be taken back to HSP and be given to a deserving child. All in all the kids put together a whopping 26 bags to be taken back to HSP and given to families in need! HSP sends a huge thank you to all the volunteers at McDonald’s. Every helping hand can make a difference to those in need!

If you or a group you are a part of would like to volunteer with Humanitarian Service Project, we welcome you to call us at 630-221-8340 or email us at
