Sponsor a Child – What Is It?

1 – EDUCATION IS THE KEY
It is often education that breaks the cycle of poverty.  With tuition rising quickly, attaining a college degree can be more challenging for some.  The College Assistance Program provides aid to offset tuition costs, purchase textbooks and computers, and help with other college-related fees and costs.

 

2 – KEEP A CHILD WARM IN WINTER
The Home & Hearth Program helps local families—people right in our community—who are temporarily struggling to make a housing or utility payment.  Our goal is to prevent families from entering a downward economic spiral from which recovery can be very difficult, if not impossible.  Keeping a family in a house with the heat turned on is a very important part of our mission.
3 – GIVE A MONTH OF MEALS
School lunch in the T/E School District is $4-$5/day and reduced lunch is about 40¢ a day.  Struggling families who make just over the federal limits must pay full price.  The School Lunch Assistance Program helps address the gap for each qualifying child’s meal account every month.
4 – SEND A KID TO CAMP
In our area, most kids have a summer of fun attending enriching camps and going on a family vacation.  The kids that T&E Care supports often don’t have these opportunities—their summers typically entail sitting at home, day after day, for almost three months.  Can you imagine what a special treat it would be for these kids to be able to attend some type of camp for even just a week?  Summer camp provides important unstructured outdoor play, enables engagement with other kids, teaches new skills, and allows kids to relax in a safe setting.

 

The mission of T&E Care is to maintain a network of people providing financial and other material assistance to persons in need in and around the Tredyffrin and Easttown township areas.
