The Humanitarian Service Project

Please join in helping to provide for needy children going back to school.  The Humanitarian Service Project is an organization in DuPage County that has initiatives to provide to needy families, seniors and children in DuPage and Kane Counties.

The project’s mission follows:

It is the mission of the Humanitarian Service Project to alleviate the pain and suffering that poverty brings to needy seniors and children living in DuPage and Kane Counties, Illinois, without distinction of gender, race, creed, caste, or color.

The Humanitarian Service Project (HSP) started in Karole & Floyd Kettering’s spare room  in 1979 with the purpose of helping needy families during the Christmas season in the DuPage County area by providing them with an abundance of groceries and gifts.  This organization now provides for 115 seniors, 145 families and 90 familes of children with groceries, birthday parties and Christmas gifts.

A collection box to collect the supplies will be available on the third floor cafe during finals week.
