Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts Making a Difference!

Every day here at the Humanitarian Service Project brings in new and different groups that want to help, especially around the holidays. This week we have seen multiple Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops bring in items from toy drives and food drives that they held.

We would like to thank Cub Scouts Pack 151 from Fairview School and Daisy Troop 41159 from Westbrook School, both in Mount Prospect, for their generous contribution. Together these 2 groups brought in over 80 toys! These toys will be wrapped and given to needy children in the Dupage and Kane counties. Your thoughtfulness to think of others will be much appreciated this Christmas.

We would also like to give a big thanks to a Daisy Troop from Lowell Elementary School in Wheaton and Cub Scout Pack 191 from Carol Stream. The Daisy Troop was able to collect 55 boxes of non-perishable items and also made beautiful Thanksgiving placemats. The Cub Scout Pack had 2 SUV’s full of food that they were able to collect over the course of the food drive. This food will be delivered to seniors also in the Dupage and Kane county area just in time for the holidays.

Thank you again to everyone who helped out with these drives. Your kind donations will make the lives of needy children, seniors and families a lot brighter and filled with joy this season!
