Making an Impact

Those of you who are in the habit of reading, watching, or listening to the news in the morning may already be aware that a new study conducted by The Greater Chicago Food Depository has shown that roughly 1 in 5 Chicagoans can be considered hungry. The study showed that this was not only an urban problem, but a suburban one as well, as numbers for suburban Cook County were not much better. While the study did not extend to Dupage and Kane Counties, it shows that hunger is a problem right in our backyard. What it also demonstrates is how important all of the support that our volunteers and donors give to the Humanitarian Service Project truly is because it is satisfying a very real need in lives of people. We want to thank all of our supporters for helping HSP reach out to those who are in need in the area. You can read more about the study by reading this article,

Every year, HSP is able to provide food for needy families through our Summer Feed the kids program, to needy senior citizens year round through our Senior Citizen Program, and both groups during the holidays through our Christmas Offering Program. With hunger being the prevalent problem that it is, we at HSP want all of our supporters to know that their help has made a positive impact in the lives of those in need. One senior in our program said that since being enlisted in the program his outlook on life has been significantly changed for the better, the food and love that the senior has received from our donors and volunteers has made a “100% difference.” We at HSP wish to thank everyone for being a part of our endeavor to make this 100% change in the lives of the needy in the area. We are always thrilled to receive any assistance to make an impact in the lives of these seniors and families. If you would like to volunteer or donate to help HSP reach as many needy individuals as possible with our programs, you can learn more at these links:
