Today HSP was glad to host 17 volunteers from Mass Mutual Financial Group who came into HSP to help wrap gifts for our Children’s Birthday Project. This group of volunteers spent around two hours in our warehouse this afternoon wrapping gifts for the impoverished children served by the program. The group kindly even brought an assortment of wrapping paper to use while enthusiastically wrapping the gifts. The volunteer group comes to as a part of a company-wide volunteering event. This month, Mass Mutual volunteers from across the country are engaging in community service projects to serve the communities in which they work.
CBP provides 925 impoverished children between the ages of 3 and 11 with a 20-25 lb. “birthday box” full of new toys, books, party supplies and more. This project allows children in families who otherwise would not be able to afford celebrating birthdays to receive the special, memorable day all children deserve.
Within the next month, HSP will put wrapping birthday gifts on hold to focus on our Christmas Offering, so we are very grateful to these volunteers from Mass Mutual for helping us get birthday gifts wrapped for children with birthdays in the upcoming months wrapped ahead of time.
