TALBOTS SHOPPING DAY FOR T&E CARE
TUESDAY, APRIL 25, 2017
The local Talbots in Paoli is hosting a shopping day for T&E Care on Tuesday, April 25. We are so very appreciative of this offer and encourage the entire community to stop by and do some spring shopping with their great clothing options! All day long 10% of the sales (when the shopper mentions T&E Care) will go to our organization so we can turn it around to help local families with various requests.
There will be a special time from 4-8 when T&E Care volunteers will be available to thank shoppers in person.
We hope to see you there! Tell your friends!!
SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE 2017
We are starting to gear up for the 2017 School Supply Drive. This is the big opportunity we have to help all local kids start school on a level playing field. Many more details will be coming soon, but in the meantime - here are some important dates for your calendars:
July 6-23: Specific needs will be posted on our website.
July 27: Sorting day at CHS
If you know you'll be gone and still want to participate, we can always use gift cards to include with the supplies. Gift cards to Walmart or Target are best as they can be used for extra supplies, back-to-school clothes (even new underwear or socks!), some special snacks for the students, or whatever! Gift cards can be mailed to us at: T&E Care, PO Box 2111, Southeastern, PA 19399. Just mark "SSD" on the outside of the envelope. $25 or $50 increments preferred.
We'll be posting a sign-up genius page for volunteers soon. Watch for that. In the meantime if you have any questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. THANKS!
T&E Care Kids Clothing Event 2017
Another huge success!
From March 15-24 T&E Care collected kids clothes (infants through teens) for the 6th annual Kids Clothing Event (formally known as the Grab Bag)! The event itself (where anyone can come and "shop" for clothes was held on March 31 and April 1. It was a huge success!!! As in the past we were hosted by St. Matthews United Methodist Church on Walker Rd. in Wayne. They were extremely generous in letting us take over the church for this event!
If you have the ability to help with any of these VERY important needs for a few of our local families - please let us know. The power of "community" can often make the impossible possible!
A number of folks have asked for tall dressers. Please let us know if you know of any that migth be available. 11/22/16
We also need computer mice - for desktops or laptops. We prefer the type that are plugged in with USB ports as opposed to wireless mice that need continual battery replacements! If you have any extra mice - let us know!
If you can help out with anything requested in the section above - please email us at email@example.com. THANKS!
