The Humanitarian Service Project (HSP) started in Karole Kettering’s back bedroom 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. 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, IL without distinction of gender, race, creed, caste, or color. The Christmas Offering still continues today providing impoverished families with 4 weeks of groceries, frozen meats, fresh produce and gifts for all the children. In 2004, each family received an average of 400 pounds of food and each child received an average of five gifts.
