Last week, middle youth at three area churches; St. Petronille Parish of Glen Ellyn, Visitation Parish of Elmhurst, and Resurrection Parish of Wayne, made a generous donation of $200 to feed needy families in DuPage, served by the Humanitarian Service Project (HSP.) The donation will support HSP's Feed the Kids project which provides impoverished children, and their families, with healthy groceries while they are out of school for the summer. This donation was in addition to a volunteering event, in which the youth spent two days volunteering to support the program.
Living Out Loud is an annual service event for the youth of St. Petronille, Visitation, and Resurrection parishes, in which they volunteer in order to serve those in need, in their communities. The youth participants of Living Out Loud volunteered with HSP in late June by packaging 100, 25 lb. boxes of non-perishables for the families enrolled in the Feed the Kids program. They also sorted through and organized 70 cases of meat.
The generous donation from the youth of the three churches will support HSP's Feed the Kids Program. Throughout the summer, FTK distributes a monthly food package to 100 impoverished families, with over 375 children, living in the DuPage and Kane County area. The 150-175 food package includes 3-25 lb. boxes of non-perishables, 15 varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables, 7 kinds of frozen meats, and 3 loaves of Pepperidge farm bread.
