An A+ in Generosity

Most children in the area have only been back in school for around a month, so it is still a little early for report cards. However, if the Humanitarian Service Project were to send one to our supporters, it would definitely have straight As. HSP is delighted that we are still receiving school supply donations well into the month to September, allowing us to continue to reach out to area children and equip them with the necessary supplies to learn this year. Just yesterday we received two large and generous donations. One donation came in form of ten large shopping bags full of supplies from the Junior League of Dupage and Kane Counties, and the other came in via 25 bags of varying size from McDonald’s headquarters.

The donations come at a time when HSP is busy reaching out to area school children, who are in need of supplies for the school year. Over the summer, HSP managed to get school supplies to several hundred children in need, by giving them directly to needy families. Since donor response for the School Supply Drive was so generous, HSP is now sending supplies to elementary schools in the area to reach even more children who need them. We thank the Junior League of Dupage and Kane Counties and McDonald’s for their generous donations, as well as, all of those who have helped HSP in our school supply initiative. If you would like more information about the Junior League of Dupage and Kane Counties’ efforts to build better communities you can visit their website at http://www.jlkd.org. I don’t think I have tell you about McDonald’s (just look for the golden arches) but you can learn more about their philanthropy online as well. Also, if you would be interesting in donating to HSP please call us at 630-221-8340.
