"Residents of Budingen assisted Tinley Park by making a $10,000 donation to help us house victims of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and we're honored to do our part to help them out in return," Tinley Park Mayor Jacob Vandenberg said. "Love and kindness know no borders - we get what we give, and this is no exception."

Budingen is located about 30 miles northeast of Frankfurt in Germany and traces its origins to the mid-13th century. Tinley Park also enjoys sister cities relationships with Mallow, Ireland and Nowy Saxz, Poland.
