We here at HSP were feeling full of energy and excitement as we conducted our third and final Feed the Kids distribution day of the year. HSP’s Feed the Kids program, which takes place during the months of June, July, and August, serves 100 families whose children receive free or subsidized meal plans at school. Since these children do not have the opportunity to receive these meals during the summer, HSP steps in to provide their families with 175-200 pounds of non-perishable food, fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, and a variety of meat.
We would not be able to serve these families in such a way without the help of all the wonderful volunteers who give their time and energy to this program. We welcomed back volunteers from the Carol Stream “Panther” chapter of the Young Men’s Service League and the National Charity League who have assisted at all three of our Feed the Kids distribution days.. We were also excited to welcome our friends from the Rotary Club of Bloomingdale-Roselle. It was their first time volunteering for our Feed the Kids program, having volunteered for and supported our other programs in the past. HSP would like to thank all of these wonderful volunteers for their help in serving our community, and for making HSP’s Feed the Kids program possible.
