Thank you Sabre Holdings and Kohl’s (Wheaton) volunteers!

Every month the Humanitarian Service Project distributes over six tons of groceries to 121 needy seniors enrolled in the Senior Citizen Project. Each senior is provided with over 100 lbs of groceries. Seniors are given an assortment of food including a variety of frozen meats, vegetables, fresh fruits, paper products, and items for personal care. On May 17th, 2013 volunteers from Kohl’s (Wheaton) and Sabre Holdings came to help sort bread, produce, and canned goods to help the Humanitarian Service Project sort the large amount of food provided by the National Association of Letter Carriers annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

The Chicago employees of Sabre Holdings provided ten volunteers for the morning shift and eight volunteers for the afternoon hours. Sabre holdings is a global technology company that provides services for people all around the world to plan, book and get to their destination for an appropriate price and time. The volunteers from Sabre Holdings came prepared to work diligently. The employees of the Humanitarian Service Project had the chance to work with the volunteers from Sabre Holdings. We noticed that they were kind, fun individuals looking to give back to the community.

The other group of volunteers came from Kohl’s department store in Wheaton, Illinois. Kohl’s of Wheaton regularly sends volunteers to help us here at the Humanitarian Service Project. As always the volunteers from Kohl’s worked hard and brought good attitudes to the Humanitarian Service Project. The five volunteers helped sort produce for our delivery day tomorrow for the seniors of DuPage County.

The Humanitarian Service Project wants to thank the volunteers of both Kohl’s and Sabre Holdings for their hard work so that we may provide much needed groceries to the impoverished seniors in our Senior Citizen Project.  If you are interested in donating or volunteering your time with the Humanitarian Service Project, call us at 630-221-8340 or email us at
