Thank you, St. Athanasios Church!

Humanitarian Service Project would like to extend our deepest gratitude to St Athanasios Greek Orthodox Church in Aurora for donating a large amount of non-perishable food through a food drive. The drive was picked up at the church, and delivered to our center in Carol Stream yesterday. The generous amount donated from the church was even more than they had estimated, totaling a whopping 387 pounds! The food donated will go to help the needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. Every month, the needy seniors in the program receive over 90 pounds of groceries of every major food group to help alleviate the financial burden they are under. We want to thank everyone at St. Athanasios for their generous assistance in helping HSP provide for our seniors.

The generous people at St. Athanasios Greek Orthodox church have been helping HSP reach out to those affected by hunger in the area for over eight years. Without support like theirs, HSP would not be able to make an impact in the lives of the needy people we support. As the holiday season begins to approach, HSP begins looking for more and more food drives like this one from St. Athanasios, because we look to provide food to not only the seniors in our project, but also to needy families around the holidays. If you have any interest in running a food drive to help HSP reach these needy people, you can learn more at our website:, or call us at 630-221-8340.
