Waubonsie Valley High School Reaches Needy Seniors with Incredible Paper Drive!

Humanitarian Service Project wants to extend our deepest thanks to the student body of Waubonsie Valley High School in Aurora, for conducting a HUGE paper drive for the needy senior citizens that we serve. Our volunteer drivers Pete Laabs and Mike Reich picked the paper up from the school yesterday, and the collected items packed HSP’s two cargo vans to the brim.

This paper donation from Waubonsie was the result of a school-wide drive spearheaded by the student council. From the 11th to the 20th, students were encouraged to bring in paper towels, Kleenex, and toilet paper for the needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. The student’s got so behind the idea that, in this relatively short period of time, they collected so much paper that the donation took up a whole row in our warehouse!

With the cost of necessities like medication and rent, the needy senior citizens in our project cannot afford items that are necessary to live comfortably, like these paper products. For this reason, we want to thank all of the students from Waubonsie Valley High School, for reaching out to these seniors with this generous drive. If you too would like to touch the lives of senior citizens in need please call us at 630-221-8340.
