Donations: Our Driving Force

It’s a seasonal seventy degrees outside now, but we at the Humanitarian Service Project are already thinking ahead to a time when the mercury will struggle to get above 32. HSP always has needs for donations, and that need simply gets greater when summer gives way to fall and winter. We have a number of projects, both year round and seasonal, which rely on the generosity of our supporters to help us provide for the less fortunate. Two great ways to support HSP in these initiatives is by running a food or toy drive. It is through generous donations, via these drives, that HSP is able to reach out to those in need in Dupage and Kane Counties.

Humanitarian Service Project has many projects that get food out to those who need it in the area. We just finished our summer Feed the Kids Program a little over a month ago, but there is still the Senior Citizen Project which gets food out to needy seniors year round, and our Christmas Offering Program where we supply 2-3 weeks’ worth of food to 150 needy families is approaching quickly. If you would be interested in donating food, or potentially running a food drive, you can look for more information at this link: There you will find a list of food, as well as tips on how to organize a food drive.

Humanitarian Service Project also has some very good programs that provide toys to children below the poverty line. We could particularly use donations and drives to provide toys to children at Christmas time. You can find a list of toys and our Toy Drive flyer if you follow this link: We at HSP thank all of those who have helped us with toy and food drives in the past and we want them to know that there support has touched the lives of hundreds of needy children and senior citizens in the area. If you would like to make a donation, or possibly run a food or toy drive, please call us at 630-221-8340.
