As we all look forward to ringing in 2015 at the stroke of midnight, HSP would like to take a look back and thank all of those who helped us make a difference in the lives of those in need this year. 2014 was an exciting and memorable year for HSP marked by growth in our programs, allowing us to better serve the neediest members of our community.
Our Senior Citizen Project continued to provide nutritious groceries and other life-altering services to seniors every month thanks to the heartfelt support of our volunteers and donors. We were even able to expand the program’s enrollment to 125 thanks to the generosity of all those who participated in the Matching Campaign sponsored by Allured Business Media. The Children’s Birthday Project continued to grow as 925 underprivileged children received the special recognition all children deserve on their birthdays. The summer saw the success of our Feed the Kids program and School Supply Drive. Of course, the year ended on a high note with HSP’s largest Christmas Offering ever with 2014 children receiving Christmas gifts. This is not to mention the memorable events along the way such as participating in the DuPage Human Race, Ribfest, the Last Fling, the annual Stamp out Hunger Food Drive, and more. None of what HSP accomplished in 2014 could have been done without the enduring and indispensable assistance of all of our supporters. Thank you for continuing to enable HSP to be a source of hope and relief for those who need us most. We wish you all and happy, blessed, and fruitful 2015.
