Elim Adults Support Treasure Chest and Orland Park Church

May 17, 2013

The men and women of Elim Adult Services love to give back to the community. They know they have gifts that can help others. Each week a group of men and women from the Orland Park Adult services go the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest. This is an organization that gives toys to children going through cancer treatment. The group from Elim assists with labeling toys, labeling gift cards, or stuffing envelopes. Whatever the staff need them to do they are always willing to help. They enjoy the fellowship and work very hard to help the children.
George and Grace Reddel of Orland Park Church found out about the work at the Treasure Chest. They wanted to be involved in the work done there and started volunteering on a regular basis. Grace felt so strongly about the work there that she presented it to the ladies of the Orland Park Church Coffee Break. The ladies shared the concern Grace had and helped organize a toy drive for the Treasure Chest. The ladies brought in lots of new toys as well as cash donations to help pay for shipping the toys to all of the hospitals they serve.
On Thursday, May 2, when the group from Elim went to volunteer at the Treasure Chest, they labeled the toys donated by the ladies from Orland Church. Grace was also able to present a monetary gift to Colleen Kissel of the Treasure Chest.
What a blessing that we can all work together to serve each other.
