Holiday Program Donation Drive-Thru
December 1, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Do you want to help make the holidays a little brighter for a local family in need? Donate to the Orland Township Holiday Program by dropping off items at the Donation Drive-Thru scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 1.
The Township’s Holiday Program has been assisting local families experiencing financial difficulties for more than 30 years. Through the generous spirit of the community – civic groups, individuals, and local businesses – Orland Township’s Holiday Program annually provides a holiday meal, gifts, clothing and other personal items to more than 200 local families who are experiencing hardship.
This year, Orland Township is requesting extra assistance in filling the gift lists. Due to pandemic hardships the need is greater. And with so many schools and civic groups not meeting in person, donations from these groups are down.
Donations of new, unwrapped items are needed. There is always a need is for gift items for pre-teens, teens and adults. Some suggested items are:
- Winter clothing in teen and adult sizes
- Grooming / shaving kits
- Hygiene products (body washes and lotions, shampoos, deodorants)
- Beauty supplies (make-up, perfumes/colognes, hair supplies, nail kits)
- Craft kits (jewelry making, art supplies, STEM for middle and high school)
- Stress relieving activity kits (coloring books for adults, paint-by-number sets)
- Board games / puzzles
Non-perishable food items will also be accepted during the Donation Drive-Thru.
The Holiday Program Donation Drive-Thru will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 1 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Orland Township office, 14807 S. Ravinia Ave., Orland Park. Township personnel will be on hand to unload donations from residents’ vehicles.
