After holding two highly attended grocery distribution events, Orland Township is now asking for community assistance in restocking the shelves of the Food Pantry
During the two distribution events, the Township Food Pantry gave close to 1,000 boxes packed with perishable and non-perishable grocery items, 1,000 cases of water, paper towels, toilet paper and a $25 gift cards to residents in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, due to unprecedented food demand because of skyrocketing unemployment amid the coronavirus pandemic, food donations go out as
quickly as they come into the pantry. In order to keep up with the demand in this time of uncertainty, Orland Township is reaching out to residents who are able to make monetary donations to do so, in turn, it will allow us additional funds to purchase needed gift cards to local grocery stores as well as other needed pantry items.
No matter how big or how small, any donation made will provide for a neighbor in need during these challenging times. Help support Orland Township’s efforts by contributing to the “Stock the Pantry Donation Drive” and help us reach our $50,000 goal.
We're in this together and together we can make a difference.
