Thanks to the PBPA for this wonderful support!
Thanks again to the Baptist Church in the Great Valley and the United Church of Christ for co-hosting the 5th annual Alternative Gift Market on November 12 and 13, 2016.

Turkey Burn for T&E Care – a huge success!
The 4th annual Mojo Annual Turkey Burn, held on November 26, 2016, was another huge success! The gym at DVFS was packed with folks who enjoyed an hour of fun and dance with Cindy Brauer leading the way. It was a wonderful way to remove those extra pounds from Thanksgiving and support T&E Care at the same time. $740 was raised with this fun fundraiser! Thanks to all who participated and to Mojo for helping out with this fun event! (Check out Mojo Fitness for other classes all year long.)
Blue Sky and Deck 5 Bands and 30 Main
Support T&E Care – Friday, Dec. 2, 2016
The Shandtract Civic Association recently donated a portion of the proceeds from their Tyler Hedges Day event held earlier in October 2016. This event is held in memory of a young neighbor who lost his battle with leukemia, for the purpose of bringing the neighborhood together and raising money for local charities in his name. The funds received from this amazing event are used to support our camp assistance program. Last year over 80 local kids went to camp, in part with the assistance of this program – so they are really touching a lot of lives! THANKS!
Thanks to the T&E Care volunteers who worked a shift at the September 2017 Tredyffrin Township Birthday Celebration! We loved visiting with the many folks who stopped by our table to learn more about our organization. Thanks to all who made donations in support of our programs.

One participant sent this note after the event: A couple of my friends joined me yesterday at the Kitchen Workshop fundraiser and I just had to say “thank you” for passing that email along. We had such a good time. 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.

On Thursday, June 14, 2009, many Tredyffrin/Easttown School District staff members met at Wilson Park to walk 3 miles for T&E Care and FLITE (the Foundation for Learning In Tredyffrin/Easttown).

FREE SOUP ‘N STUFF FOR LUNCH
SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, 2009
THE EVENT WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!
Many thanks to those who came out and learned to cook broccoli/potato/cheese soup under the capable direction of Art Roman (The Kitchen Workshop in Paoli), and then got to eat the soup in the delicious bread bowls donated by Panera Bread in Gateway Shopping Center. Lots of food was also collected for the local food pantry as well. The highlight of the event was the presentation to T&E Care of a check from Panera Bread for $2539.54! This donation from Panera came from the collection boxes at the check-out stations at the Gateway Panera Bread, with collections being gathered since their opening in April, 2008. Panera also matched the donations with an additonal 25¢ for each $1 donated. MANY thanks to Panera for the bread bowls and this donation, to Art Roman for donating the supplies and his kitchen for the soup, and to all those who came to make the event a success!
In the summer of 2012, Matt Holzer, a CHS student, decided to make a difference by raising money for T&E Care. He likes to do DJ work on the side, so he organized a dance to be held at the Tredyffrin Library, invited a ton of friends, and the rest is history! What an amazing young man to be able to pull something like this off. Thanks Matt!

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.
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!
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!
