School Supply Drive 2019 – we are finished!!!

Thanks once again to the generous community – the  2019 School Supply Drive is now finished! It takes a village to pull off this event each July – with 215+ students needing help.  And we are proud that our “village” came through again!.  See our School Supply Drive page for more details.  Questions can be sent to schoolsupplies@tecare.org.

2019 FALL FEST INFORMATION

We are excited to announce that on Saturday evening, November 9, from 6:30-11, T&E Care will again be holding its annual fund raiser, the Fall Fest.  This is our major source of revenue to help us have the funds ready when we have families asking for assistance.  The event will be held at St. Davids Golf Club. This year we are excited to add that we will be honoring Jump Dautrich, our Board Chair, for his dedicated charitable service to T&E Care and the community in general.  We can’t think of a better community “star” than Jump! 

Check out our FALL FEST page for more details on the event, how to RSVP, and sponsor and prize opportunities.  We hope to see you at the event!

  • Commonly requested are tall dressers. If you ever have one to donate let us know.
