With the holidays fast approaching, the Humanitarian Service Project is seeing many generous donations from groups and individuals in the surrounding area. HSP would like to recognize the 17 girls from Girl Scout Troop 157 for their outstanding donation of 20 senior care kits that will be delivered to the needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project this Saturday, November 19th. The girls were eager to donate and spent their free time putting the kits together. These special packages come in decorated shoeboxes, gift bags or baskets, and include items such as facial tissues, tea packets, chapstick, coffee, hot chocolate, and numerous other items. The girls were very excited to help out and enjoyed working on this project together. In addition to putting together the kits, the Girl Scouts included personal notes into each package for a special touch. HSP would like to give a big thanks to all the girls that contributed and let them know that their kind donation will be greatly appreciated this holiday season!
The Humanitarian Service Project not only aids needy senior citizens but needy children as well! Recently, Max Hyman of Highland Park, IL dedicated part of his Bar Mitzvah to helping serve these underprivileged children. Rather than the guests bringing a gift for him, Max asked everyone that attended to bring an item of sports equipment to donate. By the end of his celebration, Max was able to collect six bags of equipment from his guests that he then donated to HSP to be used as gifts for needy children. The donation consisted of soccer balls, volleyballs, basketballs and various other items is sure to bring a smile to children’s faces during the holiday months. This thoughtful donation is an admirable example of how one person can make a difference in our community. If you are interested in donating or volunteering in any way, please call 630-221-8340 or check out our website at humanitarianservice.org for more information.
