Thanks to these Amazing Girl Scouts

Yesterday, HSP received a wonderful donation from Girl Scout Troop 4518. These girls conducted a book drive, collecting approximately 200 new books for the deserving children in our Children’s Birthday Project. HSP provides each of the 700+ underprivileged children enrolled in our program with 4-7 new books, so that they can have books of their very own. We want to thank the girls of Troop 4518 for helping to make this happen!

Secret Pals Needed for Low-Income Seniors

HSP currently has 9 seniors without “Secret Pals.” The Secret Pal program is part of HSP’s Senior Citizen Project, in which a volunteer “Secret Pal” donor buys a $5-$25 gift for a low-income senior each month. Secret pals provide these deserving seniors with items to make their lives easier and the knowledge they are loved and cared for. To sign up, please contact HSP: 630-221-8340 or hsp@humanitarianservice.org. To learn more about the program, check out HSP’s website: http://humanitarianservice.org/whatwedo/secretpals.html

Thank You to All of our Human Race Supporters!

We at the Humanitarian Service Project wish to thank everyone who represented us at the DuPage Human Race on Saturday, as well as everyone who donated to support our runners and walkers. It was a wonderful event, and it was great to see so many people (and pets) raising funds and spreading awareness for a number of worthy causes in DuPage.


There are still a few days to donate in support of our runner/walker team. 100% of the donations support the seniors, children, and families in HSP’s programs. You can donate at: https://runsignup.com/Race/Donate/IL/DownersGrove/DuPageHumanRace .

HSP Bids Farewell to a Great Intern

This week HSP bid farewell to a great intern, Stefani Krautstrunk. Stefani has been part of the HSP team since late January. As a Grant Writer intern, Stefani spent her time at HSP researching new avenues of funding for HSP’s programs. We at HSP are very grateful Stefani chose to spend her internship utilizing her talents for the sake of the senior citizens, children, and families who rely on HSP programs.

Thank You to UPS

HSP would like to thank 11 volunteers from UPS Supply Chain Solutions for giving their time yesterday to sort frozen meat and non-perishable food for the seniors in HSP’s Senior Citizen Project. Volunteers from UPS regularly volunteer their time to help HSP serve the 133 deserving seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. As HSP delivers over 6.5 tons of groceries through this program every month, it is volunteers like this great group from UPS who make the program possible.
