Thank You Kohl’s and Allstate!

The Humanitarian Service Project is extremely grateful to have two wonderful groups serving with us today!

The group from Kohl's
This morning five volunteers from Kohl’s in Wheaton were a great help sorting produce in our warehouse!  These kind volunteers are serving for the “Kohl’s Cares” program through which Kohl’s and their employees work together in order to make a difference in the community!  They sorted nine different fresh fruits and nine different vegetables that were delivered by Caputo’s today and will be distributed to the 100 families participating in our Feed the Kids Program, each of which will receive over 75 lbs. of non perishables, several frozen meats, Pepperidge Farm bread, and a number of extras this month, including Jewel Osco gift cards!  We again wish to thank these five wonderful volunteers, and specifically wish to recognize Patty Capela, from Kohl’s, for organizing this event.

The Allstate group

The other volunteer group we were delighted to host today was from Allstate Insurance in Northbrook, who have been helping with our Children’s Birthday Project this afternoon!  Seven volunteers have graciously brought their own wrapping paper and ribbons to wrap gifts that children in our Children’s Birthday Project will receive in their 20-25 lb. birthday box, which is filled with a vast array of presents, books, cake mix, streamers, and other birthday party essentials!  Thank you Allstate for help making these children’s birthdays even more special!  We would like to especially thank Sue Hall for making this event possible!

If you would like more information on our current projects or would like to volunteer with HSP, feel free to call us at (630)-221-8340 or visit our website at www.humanitarianservice.org.
