Produce, Produce, Produce!

It’s the day before D-Day here at Humanitarian Service Project, and we are busy as can be! Boxes of fresh produce are stacked in the warehouse (just freshly delivered), and ready to be packed away and distributed. (In case the name “D-Day” had you wondering, it stands for “delivery day”.)

HSP supports and donates to 120 seniors throughout DuPage County. Each month, a needy senior will receive 15 selections of fresh fruits and vegetables (such as peaches, green beans, avocados, lettuce, honeydew, etc.), 7 frozen meats, 6 bags of non-perishable goods, paper products, and personal care items. The grocery delivery for one senior weighs about 90 pounds, and as you can imagine, each senior is extremely grateful when they receive their monthly delivery. Supplying our seniors with these goods improves their lives on many levels, especially on those of nourishment, health, and comfort.

These monthly deliveries would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors and volunteers, who so selflessly give their time to making each delivery a success. Helping out is fun, satisfying, and kind – the time put into this process by our sponsors and volunteers makes for 120 very happy, thankful seniors. Interested? HSP is looking for sponsors year round! Contact us at (630)-221-8340 or and see how you can help!
