Orland Park recently sponsored a Business Casual Day to benefit the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides toys, gifts and gift certificates to children and teens fighting cancer.
Village employees helped raise money for the foundation by making a donation to wear business casual clothes during a recent work day. The employees raised $500 and helped collect toys for children and teens fighting cancer.
“I am honored to be partnering with the village of Orland Park and its employees who want to give back to children and teens who are battling cancer,” said Treasure Chest founder and CEO Colleen Kisel. “Cancer treatment goes on for years, and this support from the village will truly bring joy during such a difficult time.”
“I am happy the village voted to support the Treasure Chest Foundation’s worthy cause to help the children through their painful procedures,” village employee Sandy Aubin said. “We wanted these brave children to know they will be able to choose a special item from the Treasure Chest after their cancer treatments.”
