Edison Middle School Donates $1,200

Edison Middle School Students
Edison Middle School donated more than $1,200 to Humanitarian Service Project this week! The money was raised through an event called “Money Madness” which is similar to Penny Wars where each class receives a jar to collect coins and the class that collects the most, wins. Grades sixth through eighth participated in this event, making it a huge success. Money Madness was sponsored by the Student Council and the advisers Virginia Jones and Heather Gordon helped make this great event possible! The money raised by Edison Middle School will be used towards the Children’s Birthday Project.

Kristin with Edison Middle School Student
Kristin, our Assistant Executive Director, and Karole’s successor, represented HSP at the school yesterday afternoon and was overwhelmed by how generous the students were! The Middle School has done many fundraisers for us before with equally generous results.  Everyone at HSP is extremely grateful to the students at Edison Middle School. Thank you!

The Children’s Birthday Project provides birthday gifts for more than 900 children ages 3 to 11 living in poverty in DuPage and Kane County. Through the Project, we give the children a Birthday Box that weighs 20-25 pounds and contains 6-10 new toys, 6 new books, a game or activity kit; plush animals; several smaller gifts, and a “Party-in-a-Bag” that contains cake mix, frosting, candles, balloons, plates, cups, hats, party favors, streamers and more! If you or your organization would like to volunteer or donate, send us an email at
