Giving Never Goes Out of Fashion

At the end of last month, Humanitarian Service Project was honored to be the chosen recipient of the funds raised by the Bloomingdale Women’s Club’s 37th Annual Fashion Show. The show, which is one of the club’s largest annual events, was held April 29th and featured fashions from Carson Pirie Scott, Sassy’s Originals, Bella Bianca Couture, and York Furrier Coats. HSP was even represented in the show by Becky Yambrovich, daughter of Co-founders Karole and Floyd Kettering, as well as her daughters, Morgan and Olivia, who were models in the show.

Last week, everything was made official, when the club presented a check to HSP’s co-founder and CFO, Floyd Kettering, for $9,500! This donation is incredibly exciting, as it will go toward endowments for both a needy senior and child in our programs. This means that a sponsorship for our Senior Citizen and Children’s Birthday Projects will always be in place for a needy senior and child, requiring no additional funds to remain current. We are thrilled that the Bloomingdale Women’s Club donation has made this possible for a senior and child in our projects, and we want to thank them wholeheartedly for selecting us as the beneficiary of the fashion show. Their generosity has helped make such an impact in the lives of the needy people we serve.
