KIDS CLOTHING GRAB BAG 2014
The holidays are over and it's now time to start to clean out your kids' closets in preparation for the 3rd annual Kids Clothing Grab Bag! This year's event will take place on March 28 and 29, with collections made earlier in March. Because Easter is so late this year - we moved the event to March to avoid all the spring break vacations. Please check out the website page that gives lots of details about the event: when and where it is, what is needed, and the volunteer opportunities. We will need LOTS of volunteers and LOTS of clothes - so please be sure to check it out soon! Any questions can be sent to email@example.com.
Alix Mayock is hosting an event at Jennifer On the Avenue and everyone is invited to attend. You can browse for wonderful spring fashions and accessories. Light fare will be served from 11:00-3:00 and wine and cheese is available from 4:00-7:00. 10% of the sales will be donated to T&E Care.

THANKS for the great soup lessons!
On Sunday, February 9, 2014, Art Roman of The Kitchen Workshop (Paoli) ran a Soup Cooking Class for a group of community members participants, with 100% of the proceeds going to T&E Care. Art donated the food and his time! What a great community partner he's been over the years. If you ever want to take cooking classes - check out his place!
Recipes he cooked included: Thai Shrimp Soup (with Lemon and Jalapenos), Tuscan Ribollita (a hearty stick-to-your-ribs vegetable soup), Beef Barley Soup (with mushrooms), and Art's Bavarian Split Pea and Ham Soup (with Gruyere and rye crutons).
One participant sent this note after the event: A couple of my friends joined me yesterday at the Kitchen Workshop fundraiser and I just had to say "thank you" for passing that email along. We had such a good time. I hate cooking but yet had a great time with the ladies that were there and with Art. He's great and of course his sense of humor made cooking so much more enjoyable. I would do that again in a heartbeat and would recommend a class to anyone - especially those like me.
