A Carload of Care Items for Needy Seniors!

Yesterday, the Humanitarian Service Project received a full carload of personal care items for the needy seniors we serve from Insight, Inc in Bloomingdale. The business ran a drive to collect these items from April 1st to April 12th. Ellen Scott from Insight even shared with us the company wide announcement used to advertise the drive. The flyer encouraged Insight employees to play a role in making sure our seniors “are well cared for.” The flyer certainly was effective, because the drive came in the form of nine oversized boxes, which were completely crammed full of personal care items for the seniors. Some examples of these items include soap, lotion, tooth paste, laundry detergent, vitamin supplements, and Kleenex.

            HSP provides a full “Personal Care Kit” to all 121 needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project, every three months. With necessities like rent and medical expenses stretching the seniors’ low incomes, they have no means to purchase the items they need to live healthily. Providing these care kits to the seniors equips them with all the products necessary to maintain the hygienic lifestyle we all deserve. Insight’s drive will help us fulfill this need of the impoverished seniors in our project. If you to would like to help reach needy with these personal care items we are most in need of shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and bar soap. You can learn more on our website:
