It is the mission of the Humanitarian Service Project to alleviate the pain and suffering poverty brings to children and the elderly living in DuPage and Kane Counties, IL. This is done through our four projects: Christmas Offering, Senior Citizen Project, Children's Birthday Project, and Feed the Kids. We currently have 123 seniors in our Senior Citizen Project who receive 100 lbs of nourishing food delivered to their homes each month. In each delivery they receive: seven frozen meats, a selection of seven fresh fruits, a selection of eight fresh vegetables, six bags of non-perishable food, & a bag of personal care items and paper products. They also receive secret pal gifts each month along with items from their wish lists. The more than 900 impoverished children in our Children's Birthday Project receive a birthday package filled with 6 new books, 6-10 new toys, games, stuffed animals, party supplies, school supplies, coloring books, crayons, and filler gifts including: bubble solution, playing cards, Matchbox cars, etc. These packages are either picked up at our center by the family or shipped via UPS to their homes. Most of these children also receive Christmas gifts from their wish lists. Through our Christmas Offering we serve 150+ families with 3 weeks of groceries and Christmas gifts for their children. In 2013, each family received an 250 pounds of food, including: fresh produce, a selection of frozen meats, and a large quantity of non-perishable food. In addition, each child received an average of five Christmas gifts. For Christmas 2013, we distributed gifts to over 1,750 impoverished children. Our Feed the Kids provides 100 families with a 175 lb grocery during the months of June, July & August. These families receive fresh produce, frozen meats, and non-perishable food valued at $500 each month of the summer.
