Our Christmas Offering is quickly approaching, so to help us out we have had many volunteer groups from local schools come in this week. Some of the tasks that they helped with were sorting non- perishables, meat and paper products for families and seniors in need. These groups also helped with sorting toys for needy kids who will receive Christmas presents this holiday season. On Wednesday, we welcomed a group from District 204 Steps program who were very eager to help. Yesterday, we had three groups throughout the day and evening—Glendbard North’s AIM Program, the Rotolo Middle School Builders Club and the whole freshmen group from the Carol Stream Panther Chapter of the Young Men’s Service League (YMSL) along with their mothers. Last but not least, our monthly group from Ms. Heggen’s class at Glenbard South High School will be joining us today.
While we very much need the help of volunteers to keep HSP running smoothly, these students are also gaining different skills and learning the importance of giving back while working with us. Students have the opportunity to learn how to be a leader and gain teamwork skills from volunteering too. Thank you for choosing to spend your time volunteering with us and for all of your hard work!
