The Humanitarian Service Project

  • 22 people are interested

We rely on generous people within our community to donate goods for those being served through our programs. Below is information about these most needed items and ideas on how to help us meet the growing demand of the services we provide at HSP.

Non Perishable Food

Throughout the course of the year HSP provides 123 TONS of food to the seniors, children and families enrolled in our programs. We are always in need of non-perishable food and are happy to provide you a list of items that we are most in need of.

Paper Products

Collect paper products and donate them for use in our Senior Citizen Project. Providing these essentials allows for our seniors to utilize their limited income for other necessary bills.

Over the course of the year we provide our seniors with: Over 9,500 Rolls of Toilet Paper, Over 6,200 Rolls/Boxes of Paper Towels and Tissues

Hygiene Products

Every year we distribute over 2 TONS of hygiene products to our seniors and families. We are in need of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap, lotion, toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, and dental floss.

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Humanitarian Service Project to alleviate the pain and suffering that poverty brings to seniors and children in DuPage and Kane Counties, Illinois, without discrimination or exclusion for any reason.

Description

Through our three programs, HSP provides life changing support to impoverished seniors, children, and families throughout DuPage and Kane. These programs are:

Senior Citizen Project - Provides nutritious groceries on a monthly basis to the elderly. Each senior receives a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen meats, non-perishables, bread, paper products, hygiene items and a small gift from their "Secret Pal" donor.

Children’s Project- Provides children with nutritional support at critical times of the year to combat hunger and food insecurity. Children ages 3 to 11 also receive a birthday box filled with gifts, books, schools supplies and party supplies.

Christmas Offering- Provides nutritious groceries and Christmas presents to 1900+ children and 135+ seniors living in poverty. Over 22 tons of food and 10,000+ gifts are distributed during December.
