Giant Steps help HSP take a Giant Leap

Yesterday, the Humanitarian Service Project (HSP) was very thankful to receive help from children of the school Giant Steps. Giant Steps is a school that is located in Lisle. Their goals are to provide educational and therapeutic programs for individuals and groups that are affected by autism. Their programs are designed to help children, ranging in age from elementary to high school, develop/improve their communication, academic, and daily living skills.

HSP was happy to help them continue their development as we had 16 hardworking volunteers from Giant Steps that came to our warehouse yesterday. They split up into two separate groups, morning and afternoon, where they volunteered their time to helping sort and organize non-perishables that were collected from the Stamp out Hunger event that occurred this past Saturday. All of the food that was collected from this event will be used for our Senior Citizen Project and Feed the Kids program. These kids did a fantastic job of remaining positive and working diligently to help us sort through food for our disadvantaged seniors and families.

All of Giant Steps volunteering yesterday will help HSP make a giant leap in improving the lives of our very needy seniors and families. We are always looking for more enthusiastic and hardworking volunteers so if you or your organization is interested in volunteering for HSP give us a call at 630-221-8340 or email us at for more information.
