July Distribution Day Ends Successfully!

Today was the July distribution day for Feed the Kids and everyone was very busy here at Humanitarian Service Project! Many volunteers helped make this great day possible. HSP wants to thank all the friends of the Project who came out to make this day a great success including volunteers from Naperville Junior Woman’s Club and the Young Men’s Service League from the Panther Chapter in Carol Stream. All of the volunteers and staff enjoyed the beautiful day outside and were thankful for the nice breeze.
The Feed the Kids program focuses on families with children who receive subsidized lunches during the school year.  During the summer months, they often struggle to provide nutritious food to their children. To help combat the absence of school lunches and the nutrition they provide for children, HSP gives the families in FTK a monthly delivery of fresh produce and groceries during the summer months.

Afternoon Indoor Volunteers!
Throughout the day, 100 families were given their 2nd monthly delivery of groceries this summer. In the months of June, July, and August, the families receive 175 lbs of groceries. In this delivery, they receive a selection of 15 varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables, 3 boxes of non-perishables weighing 25 pounds each, 7 kinds of frozen meats, and 3 loaves of Pepperidge Farm bread.
Our last distribution day for Feed the Kids is on August 7th. Volunteers for this event are always greatly needed! Any help you can provide is always greatly appreciated. There are two shifts that volunteers can work: 9am-2pm or 1pm-6:30pm. Any volunteer who can help with FTK will know they’re making a difference and having a positive effect in the lives of hundreds of local children.  If you are interested in volunteering, do not hesitate to call HSP’s office at 630-221-8340 or email us at
