Holiday dinners 2017

We are all set with donations!  Thanks to all who have offered to help out!!

As at Thanksgiving time we supported ten local families with special dinners at the holidays.  We collected the food on December 21 and 22 at St. Luke Church in Devon.  LOTS of folks helped by providing the necessary food to make these dinners extra special.

THANKS to Jen Bracco for coordinating the drive and to Laura Pratt for again working to determine the families being assisted!  Extra special thanks to the folks at the Amana Foundation for once again providing bags and bags of fresh produce – the most important part of the dinner items!  And of course, thanks again to St. Luke for opening its doors to this project for us!

Thanksgiving Dinners 2017 – the results

Again this year, on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, T&E Care volunteers cooked Thanksgiving dinners for ten local families.  These are folks who really struggle and we like to help them know that they can be thankful they live in T/E!!   We have often received some of the most heartfelt thanks due to this program, so it really does touch home. Thanks to St. Luke Lutheran Church for hosting this event  – what a wonderful partner on this project!  Thanks to Cindy Gilroy, Danyll Lockett, and Laura Pratt for again working to coordinate this program.  And special thanks to all those who donated food for the program – the results were amazing.  VERY special thanks once again to the Hayden family – who baked dozens of pumpkin cookies for the families, and to the Amana Foundation – for delivering bags and bags of fresh produce, for EACH family.  Clearly they understand the value of neighbors helping neighbors.  (See pictures below.)

 Please contact us at turkeys@tecare.org with questions.

 

AND THANKS TO…

One new note of thanks – just before the holiday we were contacted by 30 Main in Berwyn who offered a complete Thanksgiving dinner for 4 to a local family.  The family that received this was MOST appreciative.  Thanks 30 Main for stepping up to help out like this!
