Summer Food Drive Concert in Support of Orland Township Food Pantry
The Southwest Community Concert Band will hold their Summer Food Drive Concert in support of the Orland Township Food Pantry on Saturday, June 25.
The Southwest Community Concert Band has made Orland Park its home, performing five seasonal concerts and Summer Park Concerts throughout the year annually.
On Saturday, June 25, the Band will hold their Summer Food Drive Concert in support of the Orland Township Food Pantry, in alignment with their mission to integrate with our community by promoting music awareness and providing musical services.
Admission to the concert is complimentary and open to the public. However, a donation is highly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
All food and cash donations from this concert will be donated to the Orland Township food pantry. Attendees are asked to bring their own blanket and lawn chairs for this outdoor concert. The show and food collection will begin at 2 p.m. at United Methodist Church of New Lenox located at 339 West Haven Avenue.
The Orland Township Food Pantry supplies food to low-income residents who need immediate assistance by providing bags of non-perishable items, frozen and refrigerated food, and bakery goods. Since taking office in 2009, Supervisor Paul O’Grady has expanded the Food Pantry and has made it possible to assist more than 300 families every month.
“We’re grateful for The Southwest Community Concert Band’s continuous support of the Orland Township Food Pantry,” said Supervisor O’Grady. “It is because of our community partners like them that we can accomplish all that we do at the Township. This concert is a great way to get out and have some fun with family and friends, all while supporting a great cause!”
While the Food Pantry is staffed by Township personnel, it could not accomplish everything it does without the hard work of community volunteers and the generous donations of residents and local organizations and businesses. Please call the Food Pantry at (708) 403-4222 for information on volunteering and other donation opportunities, or visit the website at www.orlandtownship.org.
