Alternative Gift Market 2015

Were you looking for alternatives to mall-shopping this holiday season?   Wondering what to give Uncle Bob instead of one more necktie?   Want your purchases to make a difference in the world?  Hopefully on November 14 or 15 you went to the Alternative Gift Market, where you could find unique hand-made and fair-trade gifts for everyone on your list, and your purchases will help people in need, both locally and around the world!

This 4th annual Alternative Gift Market was co-organized by two churches (United Church of Christ at Valley Forge and Baptist Church in the Great Valley).  We appreciate their ongoing support!

Every month the Main Line Unitarian Church in Devon shares 1/2 its collection plate with an organization.  In October 2015 T&E Care was the recipient of those collections.  We are honored to say that we recently received this donation – and wow – what a great effort on their part!

TREDYFFRIN DAY 2015

T&E Care was pleased to be part of the annual Tredyffrin Day – held at Wilson Farm Park.  We thank all those who stopped by and visited with our volunteers, and especially to those who made donations.


TD Bank – Bring Change
And Help Local College Students – What a huge success!

When a student heads to college – he can get scholarships, grants, and loans to cover the costs of tuition, room, and board.  But those books – wow are they expensive!  It can be so hard to get the funds to cover them.  We’ve actually worked with kids who dropped out of school because they couldn’t afford the books!
On Aug 7, 2015, the Devon branch of TD Bank ran a one-day fundraiser to help us cover the costs of the books for a number of the students we support.  Everyone was encouraged to gather up all lose change and take it to the branch and have it counted at the Penny Arcade.  TD Bank matched up to $2000 all the change it counts that day.  (There was a little confusion about this aspect of the program – but all change counts WERE counted, whether you donated or not – we did confirm this!)  We are excited to say that, in any case, over $2000 was counted – so we got the full amount from TD Bank – PLUS a number of folks just let T&E Care keep the change.  That total is not in yet – but we should have well over $1500 in additional donations.  That’s a LOT of loose change!  Think how much lighter our purses and pockets will be – our back doctors will be happy with this fund raiser!   Laughing
Thanks to all who stopped by and contributed to this cause.  A lot of our local college kids will be fortunate because of your participation!  Go to http://www.tdbringchange.com/state/pennsylvania/5302/ for more details.

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.

Many many thanks to the Polka Dots staff for organizing this terrific event, and to all those who stopped into the store! We REALLY appreciate your support!!!!!!!


SHOP IN PAOLI DAY – SATURDAY, APRIL 12, 2008

On Saturday, April 12 the TE North MOMS Club hosted a “Shop in Paoli Day” to raise funds for T&E Care. TE North MOMS Club is a group of local moms who offer support for each other, and do helpful activities in the community. For more info about this group go to http://www.momsclub.org/.

For their Spring 2008 activity they offered to help T&E Care! The idea was that when you shopped at specific stores in Paoli on that day either a percentage of the sales went to T&E Care, or T&E Care received gift cards (to give to families in need) directly from the stores. Participating stores included The Blue Tulip, Polka Dots, Chico’s, Julie’s Gold Ribbon, Terra Culture, Van Cleve Collection, Robinson’s Luggage, Paoli Hardware, Talbots, Paoli Nails, and Gentlemen’s Choice. MANY thanks to all those participating businesses, and very special thanks to the community members who went shopping on this day – over $700 was raised!!!!! Wow! LOCAL families will really benefit by your generous help.


PANERA BREAD FUNDRAISER – April 5, 2008

What a fantastic time had by all those who were able to attend the Panera Bread practice opening on April 5. 2008. Over 200 community members were in attendance. The folks at Panera Bread outdid themselves – the free food just kept coming and coming! The staff clearly got well-trained for their official opening this week. Please stop by and show your appreciation to the Panera Bread staff for giving us such a fun opportunity to thank the community for your continued support. We did take up a collection at the dinner so we could send some money to some of the families whose homes were destroyed last week in the big apartment fire in Malvern. Over $1200 was raised in just 1 1/2 hours. You guys are terrific!!!

One final note – remember that Panera Bread will have donation boxes for T&E Care on their counters ALL YEAR LONG. And they will match any donations that come in with 25¢ for each $1.00 donated. Remind your friends about this easy way to increase your donation!


GOOD SPORTS BENEFIT – March 15, 2008

Many thanks to 500+ community members who came to the benefit given by the Good Sports held at the Cabrini College Field House on March 15, 2008. The Good Sports are a group of 12 local individuals who hold a party once a year to to benefit some local charities and this year T&E Care was one of the charities! Everyone had lots of fun dancing and eating and just visiting with each other. The funds raised at this event will be used to help local families when some bigger assistance is needed. What a fun way to help a great cause! Thanks Good Sports!
