The Humanitarian Service Project (HSP) of DuPage County is calling out to community members willing to donate necessary personal care items for impoverished senior citizens in DuPage and Kane Counties. With only 60 of 123 'Personal Care Kits' completed for the December 7th delivery date, HSP needs support from the community to ensure that each senior receives a kit and stays healthy.

As part of their Senior Citizen Project, HSP delivers these kits every three months to each of the 123 needy seniors enrolled in the program. To help these seniors maintain a healthy and clean lifestyle, each kit includes shampoo, conditioner, lip balm, a toothbrush and toothpaste, dental floss, lotion, bars of soap, and hand sanitizer. At present, the specific items most needed are conditioner, dental floss, lotion, hand sanitizer, and bar soap.

Last year during the Christmas 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, 1,600 children received gifts and 150 impoverished families received three weeks of groceries, frozen meats, bread and fresh produce. With the Senior Citizen Project, HSP provides a monthly food delivery and secret pal gifts to 123 low-income seniors.
