Holiday dinners 2017
We are all set with donations! Thanks to all who have offered to help out!!
As at Thanksgiving time – we like to support 8-10 local families with special dinners at the holidays. We will be collecting the food on Thursday, December 21 (4:30pm-7:30pm) and on Friday, December 22 (9-noon) at St. Luke Church in Devon. We do not cook these dinners (because there is more variability in when the families celebrate with a special meal), but we’ll still need some help! A few folks will be needed for drop-offs on the 21st or 22nd, and a few for sorting on the 22nd before the families come to pick things up. And of course lots of folks will be needed to help provide the food. The Sign-Up Genius link is ready for those who would like to make a donation. Go to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409054faeaf2ba1fc1-holiday and see how you can help out. THANKS to Jen Bracco for coordinating the drive and to Laura Pratt for again working to determine the families being assisted!
Thanks again to St. Luke for opening its doors to this project for us! If you need directions for dropping off items – they are at 203 N Valley Forge Rd, Devon, PA 19333.
Contact us with any questions or if you would like to help sort the donations – firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com 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!
