HSP Community-Wide School Supplies Drive for Needy Kids

By now you have to know about the Humanitarian Service Project and our community wide drive for school supplies for needy kids here in DuPage and Kane counties. We are trying everything we can think of and are, quite frankly, worried. Worried that we won't be able to help as many kids as we did last year. The need is just as great if not greater. Every day, fathers and mothers are calling in asking for any help we can muster.

We need backpacks, paper (wide and college-ruled), construction paper, crayons, pens, pencils, markers, colored pencils, notebooks, composition books, folders, rulers, scissors, binders, paper towels, Post-it Notes, tape, paper clips, Kleenix, lunch boxes, pencil boxes, highlighters--you name it. If it is a school supply, we know kids who need it.
You can drop off your donations Mondays through Fridays, 9 to 5:30 pm at our center, 465 Randy Road, Carol Stream, Illinois. Thanks so much!
