A Call for Last Minute Donations

The Feinstein challenge has only weeks to go. This challenge is a $1 million giveaway that is split by participating organizations such as HSP in effort to fight hunger. Alan Shawn Feinstein, the founder of the Feinstein Foundation, is a nationally known humanitarian and philanthropist who’s focused his efforts in ending hunger around the world. The Feinstein challenge has raised billions of dollars over the last seventeen years. The money for this challenge will be divided among the organizations based on the monetary value of the donations they have received from March 1st through April 30th.

HSP has been working with our friends throughout DuPage and Kane counties to raise as many donations as possible. Many local institutions and good Samaritans have run food drives for this cause, but there are still items that HSP is in need of such as cereal, canned fruit, oatmeal, rice meals, PB & J, and pancake mix. The food collected will help feed needy seniors apart of our Senior Citizen Project that delivers 100 lbs. of fresh nutritious food to them monthly. HSP also provides families with children with 175 lbs. of food that are in the Feed the Kids project in June, July, and August. This initiative is meant to ease the lack of nutrition low-income families face in the summer when their children no longer receive the subsidized food from their schools.

If you are interested in contributing to our fight against hunger please e-mail us at or call us at (630) 221-8340. Remember, if you want to participate in the Feinstein challenge, there are only ten days left!
