Update on School Supply Drive

 As we head into the last couple weeks of July, HSP’s School Supply Drive is in full swing. We have had a lot of wonderful donations come in already, but we are still in need of supplies to reach our goal of equipping at least 3,000 low-income children with supplies to start school in the fall. Each year, HSP collects supplies and distributes them through DuPage Regional Office of Educations’ “Back to School Fair” and Kane County’s “Project Backpack”, which will take place in just a few weeks. HSP will also distribute supplies to some local schools in DuPage and Kane counties that have a high population of low-income families and for the first time we will be supporting the Carol Stream Police Department’s “National Night Out”. In addition, school supplies will be included in birthday boxes for the children enrolled in our Children’s Birthday Project.

We are still in need of the following items:
v  Backpacks
v  Binders
v  Pens & Pencils
v  Calculators
v Index Cards
v  Highlighters
v  Rulers

v      Notebooks
v      Folders
v      Paper
v      Colored Pencils
v      Crayons
v      Glue
v      Markers

If you are interested in donating or have any questions please contact HSP by calling 630-221-8340 or by emailing
