Our Annual Holiday Drive Is Over!
This year we supported 111 local families for our holiday drive. And once again we are proud to report that every family was sponsored with all requests including gifts, various baskets, and gift cards. We had lots of TERRIFIC volunteers helping to expedite the delivery days, to sort and wrap once the gifts were all in, and then again to deliver everything. We have posted pictures and a list of supporters on our Holiday Drive website page – please check it out!
And again – THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! What a difference you make to our neighbors. Happy holidays to all!!!
Special Fall Events for T&E Care
The fall is always the busiest time for T&E Care, and this year is no exception. Not only do we have our big annual fund raiser and our huge Holiday Drive in the fall, there are events being run for us, and our two Holiday Dinners programs will be taking place. Please see if your family can lend a hand in some way! The 2 remaining events are listed below. Click on the links for more details.
Weihnachtsmarkt (German Christmas Market) will be held at the Willowbrook Farm, 1750 North Valley Rd, Malvern, December 8th (3-7) and 9th (3-6). Lots of wonderful shopping opportunities and fun for kids as well!
Holiday Dinners – We will also be gathering food for special holiday dinners for some local families. We will collect the food the late afternoon of Wednesday, December 19 or the morning of Thursday, December 20, all at St. Luke Church in Devon.
The 2018 Fall Fest may be history, but the memories will long be remembered. We thank this very special community for once again helping us to hold such an amazing event. More details can be found on our Fall Fest page – but please know that we appreciate EVERY SINGLE bit of support! It’s all very overwhelming! Questions can be sent to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Needs for Local Families
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. Thank you.
- Commonly requested are tall dressers. If you ever have one to donate let us know.
- Sometimes when we hand out laptops we also like to give the person a computer mouse. We prefer mice with USB plugs versus wireless mice that need continual battery replacements. If you have any extra mice let us know. Please note: we no longer are taking desk tops.
Many THANKS for the recent donations of support ….
