A Call for Secret Pals!

The Humanitarian Service Project is currently seeking out individuals that would be willing to become a Secret Pal for one of our seniors. The senior citizens that have been enrolled in our Senior Citizen Project have had to endure many trying times that are difficult to fathom. Prior to their relationship with HSP, many of our seniors would go to bed hungry each night.

While the Senior Citizen Project has been able to alleviate the stress that can stem from worrying about where your next meal may come from, there are still many items that are necessary to get by each day. Some of these necessities may include soaps, clothes, cleaning supplies and stamps. Many of these items are taken for granted each day by the general population; our seniors, however, are more than aware of the financial strain these items can create.


These Secret Pal items are sent out each month along with their grocery delivery and they are greatly appreciated. One of our seniors said, “The people that help me at HSP feel like my guardian angels! I wouldn’t be able to afford clothes or shoes each year. I just wouldn’t make it without them!”

If you too would like to become a guardian angel for one our grateful seniors, PLEASE contact HSP. You may call our staff at 630-221-8340, or contact Email us at: . We hope to hear from you soon!!

The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it. –Mother Teresa
