Kensington School Holds Party Supply Drive

Over the past two days, HSP has received a very exciting and generous donation. As a part of the “Kensington Cares” initiative, Kensington School held a drive for party supplies. Kensington School has nine locations throughout the western suburbs for infants through full day kindergarten students. A teacher at the school, Jennifer Benton, helped organize the drive and added a fun twist to the drive by collecting donations to mark the birthday of the school’s mascot, Scooter the traveling bear. In honor of his birthday, people were encouraged to help Scooter celebrate by donating party supplies that will later be used as part of our Children’s Birthday Project. 1,486 packages of birthday party supplies were collected during the week of 9/29- 10/3. The supplies donated include: party favors, cake mix, frosting, napkins, candles, balloons, streams and more! The items were bagged up and delivered to us yesterday and today. We are very thankful to Kensington School for helping us get a head start on our Children’s Birthday Project for next year.
