We want to make the experience of working with HSP as meaningful to the students at your school as it is to the children and seniors we serve. It’s a great chance for your students to make a difference right in their own towns!
Students can learn about the values of teamwork, love, compassion, and service while developing skills in leadership, administration, communication, problem solving, and creativity. We'd love to have you or your students visit our Center for a tour to see our operation first-hand.
We also can send a volunteer speaker to your classroom or to your next student club meeting to explain the various ways your students could be involved.
Call us at 630.221.8340 or email for more information. These are just a few of the ways your students could get involved! We’re also open to any ideas that you might think of!
- Sponsor a needy senior!
- Sponsor a needy child!
- Sponsor a needy family during the summer months or at Christmas!
- Purchase a brick on our Service Sidewalk for $500, inscribed with your school name or a short message!
