It was an exciting afternoon when the FedEx Ground Carol Stream Community Outreach team visited HSP to drop off a donation. The FedEx Ground employees held a drive and donated Party in a Bag kits for children in need. This group of individuals has consistently conducted drives for over two years to help families and children in our community. Over the years they have donated to many local organizations and on this fantastic day the drive was for the children enrolled in the Children's Project. This incredible team is making it possible for 39 children, ages 3 to 12, to have a special birthday party with their family and friends. The kits they made contained cake mix, frosting, candles, balloons and party decorations. This is very important for a child to feel celebrated and to have the opportunity to make memories with their family. Often the parents cannot afford anything extra due to the high cost of living in our area and this is the only way their child will have a birthday party. This amazing team also donated bags of extra supplies so the parties can keep on coming. We have heard from moms and dads that this is one of their favorite items in the birthday box because they can make a cake with their child and decorate for a party together. A HUGE thank you to this loving group of people who gave of themselves to provide children with a chance to be celebrated, have an awesome party and a chance to be a kid!
