Humanitarian Service Project would like to extend a huge thank you to Congregation Etz Chaim in Lombard, for donating a large amount of food through a food drive on Saturday. We received two vans full of non-perishable food (an estimated three hundred grocery bags) for the needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. Etz Chaim conducted the food drive for Yom Kippur. Etz Chaim has been assisting HSP in our mission to reach out to needy senior citizens in the area, through food drives like this one, for more than seven years. We want to thank the congregation for their fantastic support in helping us make a difference in the lives of senior citizens who must look to the kindness of those who support HSP, like Etz Chaim, for food every month. You can learn more about Etz Chaim here: http://www.congetzchaim.org/index.aspx.
Humanitarian Service Project provides over 90 pounds of groceries for the 120 needy senior citizens in our Senior Citizen Project, to help them meet their basic needs, every month. Through the deliveries, the seniors receive fresh produce, several kinds of meat, fresh bread, and bags full of non-perishables, as well as, paper products, and personal care items. Humanitarian Service Project could not provide all of these things to our seniors who desperately need them without the wonderful support of our donors, like Etz Chaim, and our volunteers.
