Help Make a Wish Come True

Do you have a gently used couch that you would like to donate?

Do you want to help make someone’s wish come true?

The HSP is looking for donations for our Senior Citizen Project. The Senior Citizen Project helps the impoverished seniors in the DuPage and Kane County area by distributing groceries including 7 varieties of fresh fruits, 8 varieties of fresh vegetables, 5 selections of frozen meats, 2 bags of paper products and personal care items and 5 bags of non-perishable foods every month. Not only does the Senior Citizen Project deliver groceries, they keep track of larger or more expensive items that the seniors need to make their daily lives easier and more pleasant. These items range from computers to furniture to small appliances.

Last week, a very generous volunteer donated a couch and a loveseat to the Senior Citizen Project. Weeks prior he had donated a full mattress and bed frame. Not only did he donate these items, but he delivered them directly to our seniors. Shirley was one of the needy seniors who received our couch. She had informed HSP that she was looking for a couch to sleep on, as her current couch was hurting her back and uncomfortable. When the couch was delivered to her home, she was extremely overjoyed. She loved the couch as soon as she saw it and can’t thank HSP and our volunteer enough.

There are still many items that would help a senior’s wish come true. These items include:
-Air Conditioner -Dresser -Ironing Board
-Computer Monitor -Fan -Silverware
-Glider Chair/Recliner -Food Processer -Toaster
-Coffee Maker -Vacuum
