Holiday Hours at HSP!

Starting today, the Humanitarian Service Project has new holiday business hours from November until mid January! We are now open at 9am and we close at 5:30 Monday through Friday. We changed our hours because we are preparing for the busy holiday season and our Christmas Offering. HSP is working diligently to help many needy families and seniors with gifts and food! For this year’s Christmas Offering, HSP is providing 150 families with 250 pounds of food each, as well as, providing gifts and presents for 1200 children and 120 seniors! In order to provide these needy families and seniors with gifts and food this holiday season we will need your help!

HSP has many opportunities to volunteer, to donate, or to be a part of organizing and helping with specific holiday projects. You can also volunteer your time in December to help us sort food and sort toys for our Christmas Offering. The only stipulation for volunteering in December is that our volunteers must be of high school age or older.

If you are not able to donate time to volunteering then a food drive or paper drive is for you! HSP is always in need of non-perishable food items as well as paper and personal care items. You can gather your friends from your church group, bowling group, coffee group, any group and start a food or paper drive in your community! Your group can also raise money to sponsor a family this holiday season for just $60 dollars. Another great group activity, as well as a wonderful individual opportunity, is to sponsor a child or senior with a giving tree donation! When you call in for giving tree donations you can choose how many children or seniors you would like to purchase gifts for.

We are looking for some wonderful volunteers to donate a meal to a senior this November. You can cook a meal for them personally or you can choose to pick up a meal that the senior chooses from a partner restaurant, and deliver it to their home.

There are so many ways you can get involved and participate with HSP in helping those in need this holiday season. If you would like more information or if you would like to volunteer, donate, or participate feel free to call us at 630-221-8340 or email us at
