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.

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, 840 families with 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 monthly food deliveries of 100 pounds including fresh produce, frozen meats, bread, non-perishables, paper products and secret pal gifts to 123 low-income seniors. The Children's Birthday Project reaches the youngest underprivileged, making birthdays and Christmas truly memorable occasions for 925 children. Feed the Kids program provides 100 low-income families with groceries and fresh produce worth $1,500 retail in total for the summer. HSP conducts an annual school supplies drive, which sends supplies to the DuPage Back to School Fair in addition to furnishing schools and individual children with necessary supplies.
