Humanitarian Service Project would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Joint Commission of Oakbrook Terrace. A group of 8 volunteers from the Joint Commission came to our office in Carol Stream today to help out in our warehouse. Not only did the group sort non-perishable food in our warehouse for over three hours, but they actually donated the food they were sorting. They brought twenty two boxes full of non-perishable food to go out to the needy families we serve at Christmas time, and went right to work sorting it. We want to thank the Joint Commission for the donation of the 22 boxes of food, and the group of eight that came to sort it. This type of overflowing, heartfelt support is what enables HSP to reach out to the needy families and senior citizens that we serve. We also want to issue a big thank you to our longtime volunteer Kristin Maxwell for helping this group from the Joint Commission out in the warehouse.
The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies healthcare organizations and programs based on the quality of care they provide. Their “vision statement” is for “all people [to] always experience the safest, highest quality, best-value healthcare across all settings.” You can learn more about the group at their website: http://www.jointcommission.org/.
The Joint Commission’s donation of both time and food will help HSP accomplish the goal of providing food to 250 families this Christmas. On top of the food for the families, Humanitarian Service Project is also provides Christmas gifts for 1200 needy children, as well as the 120 needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. Our wonderful donors and fantastic volunteer groups, like this one from the Joint Commission, are what make this all possible. We still have plenty of need for volunteer groups in the month of December. Please call us at 630-221-8340 if you are interested in reserving a spot.
