Mothers and Daughters Serving Others

Today, the Humanitarian Service Project hosted a wonderful group from the Greater Naperville Chapter of the National Charity League. There were nine volunteers from this group and it was the first time they volunteered with HSP. This group helped us by preparing100 boxes weighing 25 lbs each of non-perishables for our Feed the Kids program. The program came to life when our founder Karole Kettering saw an article expressing how impoverished families had a need for nutritious food during the summer months when school subsidized lunches are unavailable. Two of our new interns, Ashvini and Lindsey worked with the group, assisting and answering questions.

The group volunteered today as a part of their mission, “Our mission is to foster mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences”. The Greater Naperville Chapter is the first chapter in Illinois, so we are very happy to work with each other and be apart of their 10 philanthropies. We would like to thank them for giving their time to and energy for such a great cause.

The National Charity League through our Feed the Kids program will help provide 100 impoverished families with a 175 lb grocery package during the months of June, July, and August. These grocery packages supplement the diet of children when federally subsidized lunches they rely on for their nutrition is not available.
