School of Expressive Arts and Learning Students Express Themselves through Service

“Actions speak louder than words” is such a common phrase that it has become a cliché. However, it has become clichéd because the sentiment behind it rings so true; if a person wishes to express themselves, an action is always the strongest way to do so. For this reason, Humanitarian Service Project wishes to thank two groups of high school students from The School of Expressive Arts and Learning in Lombard for showing their commitment to helping the needy through their actions the past couple of days. Yesterday and today, these thirteen students (divided into two groups) helped sort and create the first two sets of boxes of non-perishable food that will be going to the feed the 100 needy families in our Feed the Kids Project. These students helped us fill these 200 boxes with items such as canned fruits and vegetables, soup, pasta, granola bars, and main meal dishes.

Only a fraction of the boxes the students from the School of Expressive Arts and Learning helped sort for the sake of the needy families we serve.

The Feed the Kids Project was created to provide needy families with the nutritious food they need in the summer months of June, July, and August when subsidized meal programs that they rely on through the schools are not active. We want to thank the students from the School of Expressive Arts and Learning for volunteering their time to help us reach the 100 needy families who will have their needs met through Feed the Kids this summer. If you, like these students, would like to help HSP feed these families, call us at 630-221-8340 for more info.
