Humanitarian Service Project: Love in Action!

Five years ago when Peace first started Live the Love, a church-wide volunteering outreach initiative, I decided to get involved and reach out to help in the local community.  I wanted to help achieve our church-wide goal of volunteer hours.  So, I volunteered about 20 hours at Humanitarian Service Project (HSP) in Carol Stream.  However, I did not stop there.  Ever since then I have continued to volunteer at HSP.  Every Monday,  I volunteer by sorting food for the Senior project (pictured below).  

I also volunteer about 3 days a week every December for the Christmas Project.  My wife and I deliver Christmas gifts to seniors every year. 

Here is just an example of what Humanitarian Service Project (HSP) does each year:

The Christmas Project

HSP serves about 136 seniors and 1,903 children with over 10,000 gifts.  In the month of December alone, over twenty-two tons of food is distributed to seniors, children and their families in our community.

The Senior Project 

Every month of the year, groceries that are fresh, wholesome, and nutritious are delivered directly to the elderly in DuPage and Kane counties to alleviate the suffering and hardships that poverty brings. About 120 seniors are assisted through this program and an estimated amount of 130 pounds of food are delivered.

The Children Project 

This project reaches out to 700+ children ages 3 to 11 who live in poverty in DuPage and Kane Counties. The goal is to provide each child with nutritional support at critical times of the year.  HSP also proveds a beautiful birthday box to celebrate each child’s birthday and school supplies for those children of school age.

HSP is always looking for more volunteers.  My wife and I enjoy volunteering and know that we trying to “Be the Message” to those in our community. If you are interested in volunteering or getting more information, please check out their website at or contact Humanitarian Service Project at (630) 221-8340.
