HLP Cares

HLP is proud to announce that it will support St Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of the HLP CARES charitable initiative. Along with the goal of universal participation by all HLP employees, no matter how small the donation, HLP has committed $10,000 of the company’s 2017 profits. St Jude’s goal is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
