Thank You to Wiesbrook Element

      The Humanitarian Service Project would like to recognize the 5th grade class of Wiesbrook Elementary School for an amazing donation yesterday. The class assembled and donated 35 “party in a bag” kits. These kits are included in the birthday box HSP distributes to 700+ children through our children’s Birthday Project. Each kit contains everything needed to throw a birthday party including cake mix, balloons, etc. This is not the first time that the classes of Wiesbrook Elementary have stepped up to serve others through our programs and we would like to extend our gratitude to this class for making this donation one of their final projects as 5th graders!

The Humanitarian Service Project would like to recognize Rollprint Packaging for an amazing donation. Through a companywide drive they were able to donate a carload of food to go towards the seniors, children and families that rely on HSP for nutritious groceries. We would like to thank Rollprint Packaging for their generous contribution and we are truly grateful for the selflessness they put forth.

Thank You To Our Monday Morning Food Sorters


The Humanitarian Service Project would like to recognize some of our wonderful volunteers. Our Monday Morning Food Sorters come in nearly every Monday to sort non-perishables for the low-income senior citizens we serve. Our Senior Citizen Project delivers 100 pounds of groceries to each of the 133 seniors we serve every month. This would not be possible without the dedication of our Monday Food Sorters, and we are truly grateful for all they do.

Volunteers Needed for Fun Summer Fundraiser

It’s finally summer, which means it’s almost time for Ribfest! Every Fourth of July weekend, the Naperville Exchange club hosts this fun event for the public. In addition to providing delicious food and great music, Ribfest also raises thousands of dollars for charity every year. The Humanitarian Service Project is one of the organizations that benefits from this event. Ribfest is staffed by volunteers, and the more volunteers representing HSP, the more funds we will receive to serve families in need through our Feed the Kids program.
