The Orland Park Lion’s Club presented a substantial donation to the Orland Township Food Pantry.
The Orland Park Lions Club graciously arrived at Orland Township on Friday, Nov. 19, with a substantial donation for the Orland Township Food Pantry to assist residents experiencing financial hardship, according to the office of Township Supervisor Paul O’Grady.
The Orland Park Lions Club, which has served the community for well over 55 years, donated $1,800 to help distribute non-perishable food, water, fresh produce, bakery items, meat and other household necessities to Orland Township residents in need this holiday season.
“We’re always so blessed to have such wonderful community members who are willing to help others during a time of need,” said Supervisor O’Grady. “This donation from the Lions Club will help residents purchase additional grocery items for their families. We are continuously grateful for their generosity.”
For over 30 years, Orland Township has provided a yearly holiday meal, gifts, and other personal items to more than 200 families who are experiencing financial difficulties: with a majority of the recipients being clients of the Orland Township Food Pantry. Whether you’re donating as a single resident, family, school, or business, your generosity during the Orland Township Holiday Program is greatly appreciated.
