Thanks to our Friends at UPS

HSP received some amazing news last Friday from our friends at UPS Supply Chain Solutions. As a volunteer group from UPS arrived to sort fresh produce and bread for our Senior Citizen Project (SCP) they presented HSP with a check for $20,000. This gift was a grant from the UPS Foundation, which heavily factored in the volunteer hours from the UPS team members in Carol Stream and in Elk Grove Village in its decision process. HSP was recognized for our impact in the community thanks, in no small part, to UPS.  Nearly every month HSP hosts volunteers from UPS to sort the fresh produce and bread delivered to the 123 impoverished seniors enrolled in HSP’s Senior Citizen Project. Their continual support allows HSP to provide nutritious groceries to these seniors month after month. The donation from the UPS Foundation will be used to replace one of HSP’s aging cargo vans, which is critical for the operation of HSP’s programs to serve the needy. Every week HSP travels throughout DuPage County and beyond for donations and other tasks related to the SCP and the Children’s Birthday Project. We wish to thank our friends at UPS and the UPS Foundation for helping us make a difference in the lives of seniors, children, and their families suffering from poverty in our community.
