We are always happy to answer your questions.
How do you fund your efforts?
We rely on generous monetary donations from individuals, schools, clubs, churches, companies, and grants. Community members also donate non-perishable food, toys, books, school supplies, and other items.
I want to teach my children to help those in need. How can I do that?
There are a number of service project opportunities that are perfect for children to participate in. You can find more information in our Resource page.
Do you have weekend volunteer hours?
Normally, HSP is closed on the weekends and does not have volunteer hours available on those days. However, on occasion, there are special weekend events where volunteers are needed. The best way to keep up to date on these events is to sign up for HSP’s electronic newsletter here.
I need help myself. What should I do?
If you wish to apply for one of HSP’s programs you can fill out and submit an application for either the Senior Citizen Project or Children’s Project. Applications can be found in the program’s sections under “What We Do”.
