Thank You Young Men’s Service League

Humanitarian Service Project would like to extend a huge thank you to the Carol Stream “Panther” Chapter of the Young Men’s Service League for holding and donating a large toy drive for the sake of the needy children served by our Children’s Birthday Project. The donation was dropped off at our center in Carol Stream earlier today by Debbie Finnegan, and, let us tell you, it was quite the impressive drive. Debbie’s van was completely filled with wonderful gifts including many heavily needed items like board games and sports equipment.

The Young Men’s Service League is an organization with chapters in five different states, in which mothers and their sons engage in service and make donations to benefit the needy of their communities. The Carol Stream chapter has been very active in assisting HSP this year, and has shown particular devotion to helping us reach the needy children served by our Children’s Birthday Project. Several members volunteered their time on two different days in the month of July to help sort gifts for the project, and numerous other members helped out in May during the annual Stamp out Hunger food drive. We wish to thank them again, for all this phenomenal support.

This fantastic toy drive from the Young Men’s Service League comes in a great time, as we at HSP are just beginning to prepare for the Christmas season. Not only are we committed to providing gifts to help make birthdays special for the 888 children ages 3-11 in our Children’s Birthday Project, but they, along with their siblings up to age 15, receive gifts at Christmas time as well. Toy donations, such as this one, are what continue to allow HSP to reach out to these needy children and help them feel special. If you would be interested in helping HSP’s Children’s Birthday Project, or one of our other projects, you can learn more at our website: http://humanitarianservice.org or call us at 630-221-8340.
