An Apple a Day…

Humanitarian Service Project would like to thank 1st United Methodist Church in Bensenville for the donation of between 350 to 400 pounds of apples for the needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. The donation was delivered to our center in Carol Stream by Julie, from 1st United Methodist, around noon today, and was large enough that it took several of us here at HSP to unload all of them. The apples are from a local orchard, and there are several different kinds of apples. The donation is sure to keep our seniors munching for quite some time.

The apples will go to our seniors as part of the monthly deliveries they receive through our Senior Citizen Project. Every month the seniors receive over 90 pounds of groceries including around fifteen different kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables, several types of meats, bread, non-perishables, paper products, and personal care items. Donations and support like this wonderful donation from 1st United Methodist Church are what allow HSP to get all of these necessary supplies to all 120 seniors every month. We at HSP would again like to extend our deepest thanks to everyone at 1st United Methodist in Bensenville for the support.
