After having discussed the generous donation by a group of high school students from Downers Grove North yesterday, we at the Humanitarian Service Project are happy to continue with that theme today. HSP would like to thank the Key Club at Willowbrook High School in Villa Park for donating a large amount of food for the needy people in our programs through their annual food drive. The food was picked up at Willowbrook by our volunteer drivers Bud Newman, Joe Dooley, and Mike Reich yesterday, and the food donated filled an entire van. We at HSP want to thank everyone involved with the Willowbrook High School Key Club for their continued assistance in helping us reach out to those who are affected by poverty. The club has been assisting HSP through its annual food drive since 1997.
The food collected by Willowbrook High School’s Key Club will go directly to the needy seniors and families that we at HSP serve. Every month, the 120 needy senior citizens in our program receive over 90 pounds of groceries, including food from all food groups, to make sure their basic dietary needs are met. This is also the time of year in which HSP takes on the extra goal of providing a large amount of food to many of the needy families in our Children’s Birthday Project for the holidays. We want to thank the Willowbrook High School Key Club and all of our other donors, for helping make this possible. We would also like to thank our drivers Bud, Joe, and Mike, and all of our other great volunteers, who help keep things moving at HSP.
