Volunteer Spotlight: Bernie Stands Against Hunger

Our regular volunteer, Bernie R., shared his thoughts with us on why he volunteers with #hsp. Bernie drives 2 hours just to volunteer with us every week; he's a huge help, a hard worker, and a joy to be around. He often brings us snacks, and he always brings smiles and laughter to us. We cannot thank Bernie and all of our other volunteers enough for all of their support; we couldn't serve the number of clients we do without them!

Go Orange this Thursday

Happy Tuesday, everyone! We hope you all had a relaxing, fun Labor day yesterday! HSP would like to take this time to remind you to GO ORANGE on this Thursday, September 8th, which is National Go Orange Day for Hunger Action Month! Go Orange to raise awareness about the hunger our community faces and take action to help end it. Be sure to send us your photos or tag us in them so we can all take part in National Go Orange Day together!
We also wanted to share a FUNdraising idea to help you take action against hunger with HSP: Keep track if the amount your household spends on groceries in one week, and donate this amount, or a percentage of this amount, to HSP to help us feed our hungry neighbors. Don't forget to challenge your friends to do the same thing!

Hunger Action Month: Staff Testimonial

Happy Friday, everyone! For our Friday Staff Spotlight, we're featuring our Volunteer and Operations Coordinator, Bridget! Bridget said that if she had to go hungry, she wouldn't be able to concentrate on what she's reading or listening to. Bridget is an avid reader and jazz listener, so she understands the importance of how an empty stomach can negatively effect not only your concentration, but also your ability to learn! Help us take action against hunger this September by sending us your own #HAM testimonials!

Join HSP for Hunger Action Month!

Happy Hunger Action Month, otherwise known as HAM! All month long, HSP will be representing HAM through a variety of activities on all of our social media, especially Instagram! We'll be giving you fundraising ideas, donation ideas, and the thing we're all really excited about: highlighting staff and volunteers on how they're taking action to help end hunger! You'll be seeing a lot of these plates over the coming month, and we invite you to send us your own testimonial so we can feature it on here, or make your own plate and tag us in your photo! If you aren't the outgoing type, a simple way for you to take action against hunger is to wear orange, HAM'S color, all month long to bring awareness to food insecurity. Help us take action against hunger and raise awareness for the hunger that affects DuPage and Kane counties this September!

School Supplies Distributed to Schools in Need

Yesterday, HSP was excited to send school supplies off to three schools with high populations of low-income students. Our volunteer, Bill Fehling, delivered a van load of supplies to Beaupre, Gates, and Oak Park Elementary Schools in Aurora. Each of these schools has over 90% of their student body coming from low-income families. The supplies we’ve sent to these schools will be distributed to these students, so that they have the supplies they need to succeed this school year.

HSP was able to make this difference for these children, thanks to everyone who supported our School Supply Drive this year. We will distribute supplies to additional schools in different parts of our service area in the coming weeks, so stayed tuned!

Help Save a Senior in Need!

HSP is currently running an endowment campaign to add a new senior to our Senior Citizen Project. This program provides healthy groceries every month to low-income seniors who cannot afford the groceries they need to live a healthy life. Our generous friends at Allured Business Media have agreed to match any donations to this program up to $7,500. If we are successful in raising this endowment, the senior will be added to our program in perpetuity. No further funding will ever be needed, and the senior will never have to worry where his or her next meal will come from. Please help us make this huge difference in the life of a low-income senior. You can donate to the campaign here:

More "Wishes of Wisdom"

This week, HSP is excited to have fulfilled two more “wishes of wisdom” for our seniors. The Wishes of Wisdom project, launched this summer, aims to enrich the lives of seniors in our Senior Citizen Project by providing them with gifts and experiences. Earlier this week, a senior was gifted a power lift chair to increase her mobility. Today, another senior will receive a table and chairs so that she will be able to enjoy meals with her grandchildren. HSP is thrilled to have the opportunity to grant the wishes of our seniors, and we can’t wait to see the impact this project will have in the future!

HSP Bids Adieu to Two Great Interns

This week, HSP has had to bid goodbye to two of the amazing members of our summer intern team, Mel Cherry and Kathleen Barry. These two have spent a majority of the summer making a huge impact in the lives of the seniors, children, and families enrolled in HSP’s programs, and we want to take the opportunity today to recognize their contributions.

Mel was the first summer intern to join HSP in May. Mel spent her time at HSP assisting us with a myriad of projects including communicating with our clients, spreading the word about HSP’s School Supply Drive, and much more.

Kathy spent her time at HSP helping us get our new “Wishes of Wisdom” program up and running. Through this new program, HSP has been able to further serve some of the seniors enrolled in our Senior Citizen Project by granting “wishes” for special items, or events, to enrich their lives.

Both Mel and Kathy have made their mark around HSP, and we will miss them both. Please join us in thanking them for all they did for the sake of the seniors, children, and families we serve.

A Busy Day at HSP!

Today is a busy and exciting day at Humanitarian Service Project; we are preparing for our final Feed the Kids day and making our second school supply delivery! Throughout the summer, HSP has been collecting school supplies to give to DuPage and Kane counties for their Back to School fairs.

We’ve received so many wonderful donations from organizations and individuals, and are extremely grateful for the generosity of our donors. 

HSP would also like to thank a group of regular volunteers from UPS. As long time supporters of HSP, they volunteer frequently to help us sort produce and other goods for our programs. Today they are volunteering their morning to sort produce for our final FTK food distribution day, which is tomorrow. Our 2016 Feed the Kids has been successful and impactful, and this wouldn’t be possible without the help of volunteers like UPS.

Support Kristin and Allyson's Campaign!

Time is running out to support HSP team members Kristin and Allyson in their campaign to provide nutritional support and happy birthdays for low-income children! Kristin and Allyson both celebrated their own birthdays in the month of June.

They are already more than halfway to their goal, so visit their campaign at to donate, wish them a happy birthday, and help provide a happier birthday for kids in need!
