Gifts from Girl Scouts!

Humanitarian Service Project would like to take this opportunity to recognize all of the help and support we receive from so many of the Girl Scout Troops in our area! These girls truly stand by their mission of helping young ladies become more courageous and confident while making their community and world a better place. Just last year marked the 100th anniversary of this wonderful organization and we are glad to see it continue and grow.

At the end of last week HSP received two wonderful donations by some of our very own community Girl Scout Troops. Girl Scout Troop 50155 out of School District 93 banded together and organized a band-aid drive. The drive produced an astonishing number of band-aids, 5,286 of which were generously donated to HSP! That means a lot of healing! The band-aids will be given to both the needy seniors and children we serve in our programs. The seniors will receive them in their 100lb monthly deliveries of groceries and personal care items, while they will also reach needy children during out Feed the Kids Program.  

Our second donation came from Naperville Girl Scouts. These scouts had the great idea that while they celebrated and partied at a Daddy Daughter Dance, they should collect party supplies to donate for needy children. The result of their collection was a whole trunk load of party supplies that will make so many kids happy on their birthdays! These supplies will be used to make Party-In-A-Bag Kits which allow the needy children we serve to enjoy the full birthday experience, by creating a party environment that includes fun themed hats, plates, cups, yummy cake mix, and more!

Thank you again Girl Scout Troops for helping us serve the needy seniors and children of DuPage and Kane Counties
