Support for Coronavirus-related Struggles
In light of the coronavirus situation, it is expected that T&E Care will get many requests from our neighbors for help with bills and food. Any donations you can make would be helpful as we fulfill those needs. Donations of gift cards for food would be fine if you have them, but if you’d rather not go shopping you can just donate cash and we’ll go and get one big order of cards. Cash can then also be used to pay rent and utility bills as well. Cash donations can either be done by mailing a check as explained below, or by making a venmo or paypal donation. THANK YOU for any assistance you can offer in these truly extraordinary times.
Consider staying local with your donation
To make a tax deductible donation to help families in need, please send a check made payable to “T&E Care”. The check should be mailed to: T&E Care, attn: G. Guttman, PO Box 2111, Southeastern. PA 19399.
Don’t forget about matching gifts too. Many companies offer this option. If you can double your donation this way we’d certainly appreciate it.
If you wish to make your donation via United Way, our official name is Tredyffrin & Easttown Care and our code is #14793079.
Donations of any amount are appreciated. Questions related to donations should be sent to email@example.com.

T&E Care and Amazon Smile
T&E Care is part of the Amazon Smile Foundation program. If you shop on Amazon.com you may elect to have 0.5% of your purchases go to your designated charity; your cost does NOT increase. If you are an online shopper and Amazon is one of your go-to sites, please consider naming T&E Care as your charity of choice. This type of donation can really add up if lots of people sign up. It’s very easy to do and takes about 30 seconds, but you need to register in advance (one time only):
- Go to www.smile.amazon.com
- Be sure you are signed into your own Amazon account.
- Name your charity of choice: Tredyffrin & Easttown Care (best to put this and NOT T&E Care)
- Each time you shop on Amazon, go to www.smile.amazon.com. If you forget and go to Amazon.com, you’ll get a notice reminding you.
Memorial, Honorary & Special Donations
You are welcome to make a donation in memory or in honor of someone, or as an alternative gift for someone. A notice of your donation will be mailed to the appropriate person to announce your caring gift. Or, if desired, we can send you a notice you can give to the person.
Donations should be made payable to T&E Care and mailed to the address above. Please include the name of the person you wish to remember or honor, and the name & address of the person you’d like to be notified of your donation. Write neatly please. NOTE: If you choose to make the donation through Pay Pal please send a separate email alerting us of the purpose of this donation. There is no box on the Pay Pal site that allows you to indicate this.
Donating Gift Cards & Other Special Items
During certain times of year T&E Care asks for donations of gift cards to help with the specific drives. With the School Supply Drive we like to give each family a few gift cards to help with the purchase of a new outfit or extra food to help with those first few breakfasts so the kids get off to a good start for the school year. With the Holiday we like to give each family a few gift cards so they can purchase a few gifts on their own. At other times of year being able to hand a family some gift cards to ease the pain when times are really tough can be very special. These cards might be used for food, gas, clothes for work. These are things we all take for granted.
If you are interested in something different, consider a gift card to dinner and/or the movies, or tickets to an event. Phillies baseball game, the Nutcracker Ballet and Devon Horse Show are examples of past donated items. Other items are magazine subscriptions and airline miles. These are extra special treats for a family.
Gift cards can be sent to T&E Care at the address above. Questions about other types of donations can be sent to us at email@example.com. Note: when purchasing gift cards, it is best to buy them to “normal” stores not specialty stores. We try to help a family with basic needs and the basic stores are best for that.
Two Donation Notes
Donations related to special events: At times the response of our community is greater than the particular need for which we are soliciting. In these cases, any amounts collected in excess of that need will go into general T&E Care funds to be used for other means of assistance to local families. Rest assured it will not go to waste (nor will it be used for any salaries or similar administrative expenses because we have only volunteers.).
Specifying your donations: Our mission is to help individuals and families in need in our local area. We welcome your advice or recommendations regarding the use of the donations, but, in accordance with IRS regulations, we must retain discretion over their ultimate use.
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.
T&E Care is an IRS recognized non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the tax code. The official registration and financial information of Tredyffrin & Easttown Care may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll free, within Pennsylvania, 1 (800) 732-0999.
