Opportunities like this are critical for HPSS as the Depository will give us food credits in exchange forvolunteer labor that allow us to stock our soup kitchen and food pantry whichfeed the most disadvantaged persons in Humboldt Park and Logan Square.

We can give community service/service learning hours for volunteers/studentsas well. Below is some pertinent information that the Depository wouldlike volunteers to know. If interested, please RSVP to me at jdye(at)hpsschanginglives(dot)org so we canhave a final count and help the Depository make adequate accommodations for thegroup.
