Thank You Stamp Out Hunger Volunteers!

Humanitarian Service Project would like to issue a huge, and much deserved, thank you to everyone who participated in the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive this past Saturday. We had a total of 47 volunteers who in helped a number of ways including; picking up donated food at the post office, helping to load our volunteer drivers at the post office, unloading the deliveries at our center in Carol Stream, and sorting the donated food. Thanks to the assistance of these volunteers the event this year was a resounding success, and will help us provide for the needy families and senior citizens served by our projects. We want to thank these volunteers, and everyone at the post office, for helping us make a difference in the community.

The food HSP received through the drive will go directly to the needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project and the needy families in the community through our upcoming Feed the Kids Project. In the summer months when school is not in session, children from needy families who rely on subsidized school lunches and other food programs do not receive the nutrition they so desperately need. Each of the 100 needy families in the Feed the Kids Program receives 250 pounds of food in the months of June, July, and August, in order to fulfill this need. We want everyone who participated in Stamp Out Hunger, either by volunteering with HSP, or donating to your local post office, to know that your generosity has had a direct impact in the lives of those in need in the community.
