Cold Weather, but Warm Hearts

With the mercury dropping lower and lower and the sun setting earlier and earlier, it is clear that winter is upon us. People are bound to be cold from head to toe at this time of year, but we at that Humanitarian Service Project have experienced first hand that the same can not be said for the hearts of our volunteers and donors, which are as warm now as they are at any time of year. We have had so much wonderful support recently to help us reach out to the needy families and senior citizens that we serve at Christmas time. We want to thank everyone who has donated or volunteered; it is only through your heartfelt assistance that HSP is able to make such a positive impact in the lives of those that truly need our assistance.

We would like to recognize a few donations that came in today that came some very warm hearts:

· We want to thank Barnes and Noble in Oakbrook for the donation of 1658 new books through a book drive to give to the needy children in our Children’s birthday project. We also want to thank our volunteers Mike Baumgartner and Steve Stasiak for setting aside time to pick up and load the books.

· We also want to thank United Stationers in Carol Stream for the donation of several large boxes of food collected through a food drive for the needy seniors and families we serve at Christmas time. United Stationers has been a huge supporter of HSP for the past 5 years, and we are incredibly grateful for their partnership.

· And finally we want to thank Accurate Personnel in Bensenville for the donation of a van full of toys for the needy children we serve at Christmas time. The donation was so generous; we were temporarily overwhelmed in our warehouse with where to put it.
