Village of Orland Park To Again Warm Hearts
Posted on 10/24/2011

The Village of Orland Park is hoping to warm some hearts this winter, along with some heads, hands and more. Orland Park Mayor Dan McLaughlin and Village Clerk Dave Maher have teamed up to lead Orland Park's "Warm a Heart Winter Drive."

"We're asking for new winter hats, scarves, gloves and mittens for needy children and adults," said Orland Park Mayor Dan McLaughlin.

Orland Park is collecting the items beginning November 1 through the winter months, ending on February 1, 2012. Collected items will then be delivered to needy families in the area.

Contributions may be delivered to the Frederick T. Owens Village Hall at 14700 South Ravinia Avenue or the village's Sportsplex, 11351 West 159th Street.

"We've had a number of people come into the Village Hall, asking how they can help," said Orland Park Village Clerk Dave Maher.

"When we first offered this program a few years ago, the community's response was wonderful," McLaughlin said. "
