Recently, Humanitarian Service Project was featured in the January issue of Woman’s World magazine. The article was all about ways left over holiday supplies can be used to help needy children. Since the article was published, we've received responses from many new friends, both near and far, looking to help reach out to needy children. It has been so wonderful to connect with people interested in serving impoverished children throughout the country.
Despite the distance, we've received a lot of supplies as a result of this article from those outside of communities we serve. We've received Christmas wrapping paper, bags, and more from as far away as Texas and Colorado. These wrapping supplies will be used to spread holiday cheer to children of needy families served by our next Christmas Offering. We've received some other great gifts for children as a result of the article as well including clothes, toys, and books. One example of these donations came in yesterday from children’s author Dr. Richard Joelson, who donated eight books and 28 audio recordings of his books Oliver McCoy: The Boy Who Loved Onions and Oliver McCoy: The Vegetable Boy. Dr. Joelson was made aware of us from his publisher, who personally sent a box of her own wrapping supplies and thought it would be great to send the needy kids we serve these books about healthy eating.
