The food donated by these thoughtful students will help HSP reach out to needy senior citizens and families in the area. Every month, the 120 needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project receive 90 pounds of groceries to help alleviate the burden poverty has placed on them. We are also entering the time of year in which we take on the task of providing food for 250 needy families that are enrolled in our Children’s Birthday Project. If you are interested in supporting HSP with a food drive, like this one from Downers Grove North’s Direct Action Club, you can learn more at this link: http://www.humanitarianservice.org/getinvolved/fooddrive.html or call us at 630-221-8340.

Not a Trick, but a Real Treat
Humanitarian Service Project would like to extend our deepest thanks to the Direct Action Club at Downers Grove North High School, for donating ten boxes full of non-perishable food for the needy seniors and families in our programs. The club went door to door on Halloween trick or treating, not for candy, but canned goods. The club even delivered all of the food they had collected to our center in Carol Stream. We at HSP are thrilled to have the support of these fantastic high school students, who have shown real dedication in helping others. We want to thank everyone in the club for their wonderful support.
