Become Someone’s Secret Pal

HSP is looking for some generous individuals to get involved with our Secret Pal Program today. We currently have 13 seniors who are without secret pals.

Through the Secret Pal program, volunteer donors are paired up with a senior in our Senior Citizen Project, buying them a monthly gift. The gifts may be something practical the senior needs, like postage stamps, or they may just be something fun to bring a little more enjoyment into that senior’s life, such as a book. Our donors typically spend between $5 and $25 per month.

It’s a fun way to give back for people who are looking to make a personal impact in the life of a needy senior. And to show what a positive difference these small gifts can make in the lives of our seniors, just read this excerpt from one of the many thank you letters written by a grateful senior:

“I can’t thank you enough for all the nice things you send. I am very grateful for everything. Thank you.”

The gifts are dropped off or mailed in to our center in Carol Stream and are then delivered to our seniors by their delivery day drivers, along with their monthly grocery delivery.

To become a Secret Pal, please contact us at 630.221.8340 or email us at
