I've been involved with Humanitarian for at least 4 years and have taken note of their community service. Some of the HSP projects include: Senior Gifts, Birthday Gifts for Children, School Supplies, Food Pantry, and much more.

I've been purchasing monthly gifts for several seniors
and, in turn, I feel very rewarded. Many of the seniors have little leftover after paying for medical needs, so I purchase gift cards that can be used for RX or groceries. Sometimes, a senior will need stamps or extra-soft tissues...items that they can't always afford in their budget.

I've also participated in HSP's yearly Christmas Boxing Day at the center. We box up all the donations from area toy drives for needy children.

You can be assured that your donations will be put to good use in Dupage and Will counties.

Review from CharityNavigator

As a two-year grantwriting intern with HSP, I can attest that although this small human services nonprofit has been led since its 1979 beginning by its founding husband and wife, she as Executive Director and he as Treasurer, and their small founders' board, it continues to fill a major gap in the lives of poor seniors, children and families in DuPage and Kane counties.
Its previous history of sequential 4 Star ratings from Charity Navigator prior to the initiation of its new evaluation system attests to its financial stability. No one could question the commitment of the Ketterings and their Board to HSP and its mission, to relieve the suffering inflicted by poverty.
HSP's services, including food packages emphasizing first-quality fresh fruits and vegetables along with household products (delivered to homebound seniors), school supplies, and birthday and holiday gifts, supply that extra beyond which the poor cannot only survive, but live with some dignity, with hope for the future. It has a unique vision
which deserves your recognition and support.
