  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 156 people are interested

Becoming a Secret Pal can be a great way to serve our seniors. We will provide you with information about a senior in our program, along with their wish list. We ask Secret Pals to give a gift ranging in value from $5 to $25 to their assigned senior every month. The gifts are to be dropped off or mailed to the HSP center in Carol Stream. We please ask for a 6 month commitment for this opportunity.

**In response to COVID-19, we are sending only gift cards to our seniors. We hope to return to other gifts in 2021**

Please contact us for more information and/or to begin the application process.

About The Humanitarian Service Project

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.


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.



We'll work with your schedule.
