(Orland Township, IL – April 6, 2020) – In compliance with social distancing and the Governor’s extension of the stay at home order, Orland Township will no longer allow non-staff personnel to enter Township buildings, according to the office of Township Supervisor Paul O’Grady.
“On behalf of all of Orland Township, I want to thank all of the wonderful community members who stepped up and answered our call for assistance in the Township’s Food Pantry,” said O’Grady. “We truly appreciate your willingness to give your time and energy to help us keep the Food Pantry running during this trying time.”
To protect volunteers and Township staff, Township officials made the difficult decision to discontinue volunteer opportunities in the Food Pantry until further notice. The Township Food Pantry will now be run by solely by Township staff and will still operate on a drive-thru basis.
While the Township buildings are closed to the public, residents who want to volunteer and have a talent for sewing can contact the Township at (708) 403-4222, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and inquire about Operation P.P.E.P (Personal Protection for Essential Personnel) the mask making project the Township has started.
