Back to School: Here Before We Know It

Typical supplies donated to HSP.
Doesn’t it seem just like yesterday that local children were getting off the bus to start their summer while clamoring excitedly about how they are now a grade older?

            With the 2014-2015 school year just around the corner, our annual School Supply Drive is in full swing. This program strives to help impoverished students in DuPage and parts of Kane County succeed in their studies by supplying them with the necessary items to do so. Last year, we successfully reached an estimated 3,200 children!

            By partnering with both the DuPage Regional Office of Education’s Back to School Fair on August 6th and Project Backpack in Kane County on August 9th, we hope to reach even more students this time around. However, this cannot be done without your support.
            Waiting for the sales to start? Well, you are in luck! Now is a great time to head down to your favorite store and buy pens, pencils, notebooks, whatever you can. Any amount of contribution is greatly appreciated and will go a long way in helping make a difference in a child’s life.

            Any donations can be dropped off at 465 Randy Road in Carol Stream. If you cannot stop by until after the above dates, do not worry, for HSP will be collecting supplies until the end of the month and distributing them directly to other local schools with a high percentage of need.

Can you help us reach our goal? Give to a local child in need today.

Thank you for your continued love and support. It is because of you that we are able to do what we do.
