School Supply Drive 2020 – THANKS!!!

This year, due to Covid-19, our 2020 School Supply Drive looked quite different than in past years. We appreciated your patience with these adjustments while we attempted to keep everyone safe. Thanks to our amazing donors, we collected gift cards and donations (which were then used to purchase more gift cards) so we could offer each student in the program $100 in Staples, Walmart, or Target cards.  These could then be used by the families to purchase whatever supplies are needed, along with some basic clothes or other necessities for the kids.  With around 200 students, this is no small project!

We are very grateful for the support of the community, as well as FLITE (which funded our purchase of the backpacks for any students making such requests), the TE Moms Group,  and Wegmans (which donated $250 in gift cards).  
THANKS to the wonderful committee that is pulling together all the details of this event:  Jen Bracco, Paula Cardenas, Sarah Culbert, Rita Gosnear, Jean Purinton, Jennifer Roessler, Eileen Ryle, Mary Frances Szpila, and Jessica Weinberg.
 While the drive is over, late donations can always be accepted.  If you are interested in donating to the drive, you can either use our Venmo or PayPal link below, or make checks payable to T&E Care. You can mail checks to T&E Care, attn: School Supply Drive, PO Box 2111, Southeastern, PA 19399.
