HSP Bids Farewell to a Great Intern

This week HSP bid farewell to a great intern, Stefani Krautstrunk. Stefani has been part of the HSP team since late January. As a Grant Writer intern, Stefani spent her time at HSP researching new avenues of funding for HSP’s programs. We at HSP are very grateful Stefani chose to spend her internship utilizing her talents for the sake of the senior citizens, children, and families who rely on HSP programs.

Thank You to UPS

HSP would like to thank 11 volunteers from UPS Supply Chain Solutions for giving their time yesterday to sort frozen meat and non-perishable food for the seniors in HSP’s Senior Citizen Project. Volunteers from UPS regularly volunteer their time to help HSP serve the 133 deserving seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. As HSP delivers over 6.5 tons of groceries through this program every month, it is volunteers like this great group from UPS who make the program possible.

Thanks to Elmhurst College's Athletes in Action Club

HSP would like to extend a big “thank you” to the Athletes in Action club of Elmhurst College for volunteering their time last Friday afternoon to box non-perishable food for the low-income families that will be served by HSP’s Feed the Kids program this summer. The Athletes in Action club has made volunteering at HSP an annual tradition, and they are always such an enthusiastic group of volunteers. This summer, HSP will distribute over 26 tons of groceries to local families in need via the Feed the Kids program. We thank the Athletes in Action club for helping us prepare for another successful summer of the Feed the Kids program.

Thank You Team AIM

It was a great end of the week for HSP as we welcomed our wonderful friends from Team AIM at Glenbard North High School. The group of 11 spent over two hours sorting paper products and non-perishable foods for the low-income seniors we serve. This great group of students has been volunteering at HSP regularly for the past few years and is always a fun, enthusiastic group. Some of the members of this group will be graduating, so we wish to thank them for all their support over the past few years!

Thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Villa Park

HSP would like to thank our friends from the Kiwanis Club of Villa Park for giving their time to help us begin boxing up non-perishable groceries for our summer Feed the Kids program.

Every summer, HSP distributes approximately 26 tons of food to local families in need through the Feed the Kids program. We thank the Kiwanis Club of Villa Park for generously giving their time to help us kick off preparing for another great year of Feed the Kids.
