Riding in Style

Very dedicated readers of this blog may remember a post roughly two weeks ago in which we thanked LexisNexis in Oak Brook for the donation of 10 shiny new bicycles for the needy kids we at the Humanitarian Service Project serve. We are very happy to say that, thanks to that wonderful donation, several kids were riding instead of walking out of our office in Carol Stream last week. Four of the ten bikes donated by LexisNexis were given out to kids from needy families. We again want to thank LexisNexis for helping us make an impact in the lives of these families.

The children and senior citizens that we serve at the HSP come from insecure financial situations. Poverty places a burden on those it affects, and we at the HSP try our best to alleviate the burden. Don’t get us wrong, we at HSP are devoted to meeting the basic needs of those we serve, but we also see the beauty in providing someone in need with items that may make their life a little easier or more fun. If you have such an item you would like to donate, please call us at 630-221-8340 to see if we could use the item to enrich the life of someone needy.
