Mission Statement

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

Description

Through its five main programs, HSP provides life changing support to impoverished seniors and children throughout DuPage and Kane. These programs are:

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

Children’s Birthday Project- Providing Birthday Boxes to impoverished children on a yearly basis, which include new gifts, books, and party supplies. This gives children a happy & memorable birthday with their family for their 3rd-11th birthdays.

Feed the Kids- Providing 100 families with 175-200lbs. of nutritious groceries, each month during the summer (June, July, and August.) Each family receives non-perishables, a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen meats, and bread.

Would you recommend The Humanitarian Service Project?

by Lesley S. (June 3, 2014)
Not only was volunteering for this particular event through HSP extremely rewarding the employees made everything so easy. I was given clear instructions on which person recieved which box and bag, they also even included directions for each location! Everyone was so nice and polite it made the whole experience more worthwhile. Add that on to seeing the smiles on the receivers faces made me want to do this again!
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
