Humanitarian Service Project of DuPage County (HSP) has been chosen as the Naperville Junior Woman's Club Community Improvement Project Recipient for 2013 & 2014. The process began with 14 charities and was narrowed down to just three. As one of three finalists, HSP's Assistant Director, Kristin Maxwell, and Administrative Assistant, Bridget Dooley, attended the woman's club's meeting on October 24, to educate the club of HSP's initiatives to serve the needy of the community. "This is an exciting new step for HSP as this partnership will include two years of this club's support through their hands on service and their fundraising efforts," said Maxwell. This is the second time that HSP has been chosen for this project, as they were also chosen in 2009.

The support from the club will help HSP with their four main projects: the Senior Citizen Project, the Children's Birthday Project, the Christmas Offering, and Feed the Kids. The Naperville Junior Woman's Club has been supporting HSP for more than 20 years as they beginning 1991. Over the years, the club has sponsored needy seniors and children, conducted food drives, and supported needy children through HSP's Christmas Offering. The Naperville Junior Woman's Club mission is to provide hands-on philanthropic donations to those in need, educate the community, and to give volunteer assistance to other philanthropic organizations.

About The Humanitarian Service Project:

HSP's mission is to alleviate the pain and suffering that poverty creates in seniors and children living in DuPage and Kane counties, Illinois. Last year during the Christmas Offering Project, 1,616 children received gifts and 150 impoverished families received three weeks of groceries, frozen meats, and fresh produce. With the Senior Citizen Project, HSP provides a monthly food delivery and secret pal gifts to 121 low-income seniors. The Children's Birthday Project reaches the youngest underprivileged, making birthdays and Christmas truly memorable occasions for 900 children. Feed the Kids provides 100 low-income families with groceries and fresh produce during the summer months. HSP conducts an annual school supplies drive that benefited a total of 5,200 children by giving supplies to the DuPage Back to School Fair and directly to schools and individual children.
