Thank You Party City!

The Humanitarian Service Project was extremely grateful to receive a generous amount of wrapping paper and tape from Party City in Naperville this morning! This wrapping paper will be used to wrap gifts for the 888 children between the ages of 3 to 11 in our Children’s Birthday Project.  Steve Stasiak, a long-time friend and faithful volunteer of HSP, took the time to pick up the donations in Naperville and was able to fill a van from floor to ceiling with three large boxes of tape and 804 rolls of wrapping paper!  The wrapping paper came in a vast array of designs and colors such as “green apple”, “grape”, and many more!  We would especially like to say “thank you” to Lisa Kruse for organizing this thoughtful donation; we at HSP truly appreciate your kindness! 

 Children in this project receive a 20-25 pound birthday box with 4-8 new toys, 5-7 new books, a game or activity kit, plush animals, several smaller gifts such as bubbles, yo-yos, and playing cards, school supplies, and a “Party-in-a-Bag” which includes cake mix, frosting, candles, party favors, cups, plates, napkins, and other birthday party essentials!

If you are interested in making a donation to the Children’s Birthday Project or volunteering with HSP, please contact us at (630) 221-8340 or email us at
