Before indulging in birthday cake, party-goers continued the COD Cares tradition of service by filling bags with birthday party staples for clients of Humanitarian Service Project. Additionally, College staff, faculty and students also donated children’s books to HSP for distribution to local children and their families. (Press Photography Network/Special to College of DuPage)
