Last Friday, Humanitarian Service Project distributed two cargo vans full of school supplies for 4 schools in Aurora. HSP is located in Carol Stream Illinois and is dedicated to providing relief to seniors, children and families throughout DuPage
and Kane counties. The supplies were delivered to 4 schools in Aurora; Oak Park, Hermes, Gates and Krug elementary schools to help kids prepare for the upcoming school year. Each of these schools serves a student body with over 90% of the children living below the poverty line. Every year, HSP runs its School Supply Drive that provides donations of school supplies for over 3000 impoverished children. These supplies equip students with what they need to succeed in school.
The School Supply Drive program helps take the stress off families living under financial constraints and ensures their children will have the needed supplies to have a great start to a new school year.
Address: 465 Randy Road, Carol Stream, IL 60188.
