Summer Birthday Boxes

Today marked the last delivery of birthday boxes for the school year to one of our partner schools. With the help of our wonderful volunteers Bill and Dean, HSP was able to distribute birthday boxes to Lake Park Elementary in Addison, who we have been partnered with for several years now. Head Start programs and elementary schools like Lake Park have 80% or more of their students below the poverty line and work with HSP throughout the year for our Children’s Birthday Project. This project provides kids of low-income families with a birthday box filled with toys, books, school supplies, and party supplies to celebrate their special day.  In preparation for school letting out for the summer, HSP has distributed all boxes for summer birthdays to our partnering schools. Lake Park received 43 birthday boxes today! This would not have been possible without the help of our volunteers who wrapped presents and packed boxes. Thank you for giving your time and effort to this project.
