For the eighth year in a row, Allured Business Media of Carol Stream will sponsor an endowment campaign for the Humanitarian Service Project in order to help provide groceries to a local senior citizen living in poverty.

Allured conducted a successful donation matching campaign last year with the nonprofit, resulting in the permanent addition of a senior to the Senior Citizen Project.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

They will be continuing with a new campaign again this year. For every dollar raised by community members for the campaign, Allured will match the amount up to $7,500. The purpose of this campaign is to raise a $16,000 endowment to permanently enroll a new senior citizen to the Senior Citizen Project.

This will provide a low-income senior living in DuPage or Kane county with a 90- to 100-lb. monthly grocery package for life.

The campaign is running from Wednesday, June 26, until Friday, Aug. 2.

For more than 80 years, Allured Business Media has been leading the way as a source for global information regarding cosmetic, spa and salon, and fragrance and flavor industries. They collect and publish information in numerous media platforms, although their highly regarded magazines, conferences, and trade shows tend to be the most popular.

Allured has partnered with Humanitarian Service Project and successfully raised endowments over the previous seven years. This resulted in the addition of seven seniors to the program so far, bringing the current enrollment to 138.

The Senior Citizen Project currently serves 138 low-income seniors living in DuPage and Kane counties with groceries on a monthly basis. Each month, they receive a variety of 15 fresh fruits and vegetables, 7 packages of frozen meat, 3 loaves of bread, 6 bags of non-perishables, and a gift from their Secret Pal. Every three months, they also receive personal care items, such as shampoo, conditioner, and other hygiene products.

The mission of the Humanitarian Service Project is to alleviate the pain and suffering that poverty brings to seniors and children in DuPage and Kane counties.

In 2018, during the Christmas Offering Project, 1,849 children and 138 seniors received gifts and over 500 impoverished families received groceries.

With the Senior Citizen Project, the Humanitarian Service Project provides monthly grocery deliveries of vital nutritious food, and other necessities to 138 low-income seniors.

Through the Children's Project, it provides for the nutritional, emotional, and academic needs of more than 700 low-income children. In 2018, though the three programs, the nonprofit distributed approximately 120 tons of groceries to people in need.
