Keeping up the Momentum

It seems like only a couple days ago that we at the Humanitarian Service Project were writing about how happy we were to have school supplies go out to schools with needy students (that is because it WAS only a few days ago,) but there is something to be said for striking while the iron is hot. Yesterday, HSP was delighted to have shipments of school supplies be picked up at our center in Carol Stream by representatives of two area schools, so they could quick get into the hands of children who need them. The supplies went out to Burr Ridge Middle School in (you guessed it) Burr Ridge, and Lake Park Elementary School in Addison. Both schools expressed deep thanks for the supplies, saying that there were many needy students who could really use the supplies.

The supplies were graciously donated to HSP by numerous corporate and individual donors during our Summer School Supply Drive. The drive was conducted in order to benefit families in Dupage and Kane Counties who were unable to afford all the supplies necessary for their children this school year. During the summer, HSP was able to provide hundreds of needy school children with supplies directly through their families, and, because of the overwhelming support of our donors, we’ve been able to reach many more kids through deliveries to schools. There will be a couple more shipments like these going out in the next couple days, as well! How’s that for momentum? HSP wants to thank all of those who supported HSP initiative to equip needy children in the area with what they need to succeed in school this year. We want you to know that your generosity really has made a difference.
