Thanks to the Junior League and Alpha Gamma Delta Alumnae!

At the Humanitarian Service Project we’ve been blessed to have so many members of the community who use their time and talents to help us serve the needy seniors and children in our projects. Recently, two such groups dropped off some very thoughtful donations for the sake of the children in our Children’s Birthday Project, and we want to take this opportunity to acknowledge them.

The first of such donations was made by the Junior League of Kane & DuPage County, who purchased the supplies for and assembled 25 absolutely phenomenal “party-in-a-bag” kits for the needy children served by our Children’s Birthday Project. These kits include all the items necessary to throw a great birthday party including, balloons, cake mix, icing, streamers, party hats, candles, hats, napkins, etc. The Junior League is an organization for women dedicated to volunteerism and community improvement. Sue Wilson, the member of the league who delivered the bags, said they were all very excited to put together these bags to help provide the needy children in our project with a happy birthday. Likewise, we at HSP are so happy to be able to give these kits to the needy children in our project, and we want to thank the Junior League of Kane & DuPage for making them.

After receiving this wonderful donation, boy were we surprised to get another fantastic donation of 31 “party-in-a-bag” kits, just a few days later. This donation came from the DuPage and Fox Valley Alumnae chapters of the Alpha Gamma Delta service fraternity, an international organization for women devoted to service and sisterhood. These Alpha Gamma Delta Alumnae put a lot of care into making these kits, unique and special for the needy children we serve. We want to thank them for using their time and resources to help us provide these children with memorable birthdays.

With Christmas approaching, we are entering the time of year where there is even more to do to reach out to the needy children served by our projects, like these two caring have done. If you would like to learn how you too can help out, check out our website at humanitarianservice.org.
