Many Thanks From Families Supported
by the T&E Care Community

Now and then community members ask us to give some information about some of the families our group has supported. Because these families are our neighbors, we respect their interest in confidentiality. However, when we receive words of thanks from a family we’ve supported we’ll post them here. This way you can easily check out to see that your donations really are appreciated. We’ll keep updating as we get additional notes. Note:  All notes are edited only to remove names and any identifying comments.

WORDS OF CARE – 2022

March 2022 – after paying a bill for a car that was repossessed:  I really wanted to say thank you so much. I was told I’m able to pick up my car tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited. You have no idea the amount of stress lifted off my shoulders and honestly the amount of help this has completely given my whole entire family, my kids are soooooooo excited and I am so overwhelmed with joy and excitement. I don’t know what I have done to deserve the help from your group but I couldn’t be more thankful. I have never ever been more blessed and thankful I am then I am this year. Your group has helped me so much I can’t even begin to explain. Please give everyone a huge thank you from my family to yours. We are so happy, thankful and overjoyed with gratitude your group is around and for the fact you have all thought of us in this time. Thank you so much.

March 2022 – after paying for a heater repair:  I wanted to extend my deepest gratitude on behalf of my mom, myself, and our whole family for what T&E Care has done for our family. We were able to have a repairman come out and complete the necessary repairs to our heating system. They were confident that we should not have any future problems for at least a number of years. When my mom came home from work and saw the repairs, I could see a huge weight lifted off her shoulders. It is such a relief to know that we have functioning heat (especially with this past cold wave that came). Along with the surprise of the gift cards for groceries, none of this would have been possible without the care and support of T&E Care. I am sure you hear thank you’s quite often, and words do not express our gratitude enough. When we are able, we will continue the kindness by lending out our own hands to help and give back.

February 2022 – a late holiday thanks:  I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the family that helped my family during the holidays. I did plan on sending a card back in January and then life got a little hectic with people in my immediate family catching Covid…. Thank God we are all on the mend!  I think about the family that helped us often and I really have no words for the amount of generosity and care you have given my family. My two kids and myself are beyond grateful and thankful to receive these blessings. Your work in the community is beyond measure and families you touch can change lives in the most beautiful way. Thank you! Happy New Year and God Bless! We will sure to pay it forward!

January 2022 – after paying a PECO bill: You and the T&E Care Team have been in my heart and on my mind Soooo much this brutally cold winter.  For the past 6 or 7 years I have rarely turned on the heat on my townhouse as a way to curb expenses.  I would wear multiple layers if clothes and sit in front of a Costco satellite dish space heater.  I couldn’t read books because my hands would be too cold. Thanks to the financial and emotional support I’ve been blessed to receive from T&E Care, I have enjoyed the luxury of turning my heat on when I wake up in the morning.  I turn it off when I go to work.  When I get home from work, until I go to bed, I am now able to turn the heat on again to combat the severe winter weather. Thank YOU for enabling me to live like a civilized human being!  You’ve warmed my heart, body and soul.  I am forever grateful for your kindness and generosity.

January 2022 – after paying a PECO bill:  I just got the notice of the PECO gift of energy. And yet again you have made me cry. This is such an enormous help. Things are so tight right now and I can’t tell you how much this means. Thank you.

January 2022 – an end of year note of thanks: I am writing to express my gratitude to you, T&E Care organization, and to all who really made our holiday happened this year!!! My kids received all the gifts that they dreamed of through the year – they are so happy with their new toys and incredible games, and absolutely amazing pajamas sets! I appreciate the generous amount of gift cards I received! It really helped with gifts and food for holidays! Thank you so much for the bag of cleaning supplies – It will be enough for the upcoming year!  Then, on Thursday, what an additional gift I received !!! Thank you so much for your more than generous help that I received for my Peco account. I can’t tell you how much it is of help – it will make my life so much easier with my bills for next months!  Although I know that just saying thank you is not enough to express my appreciation for your support for last years, I hope one day I will be able to help people like your organization does! I am now gaining knowledge and bachelor degree, and I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you for all your support and help! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that!  I wish you all the best and Happy and Healthy New Year!!!

December 2021 – after paying some bills for a mom: Oh my goodness, I am in tears. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can’t even express the gratitude I have for this help. I don’t even know what to say. This is truly the best thing that has happened to me and for us is so long.  I will be paying it forward in the future and hope to help T&E Care in return someday. I was not expecting so much help and am just shocked at the kindness we have in this community. It is not easy for me to ask for help as I have never really needed it before but the last couple years I’ve just been an avalanche and my kids really deserve the best Christmas and now I can definitely make it a good one. I will be forever grateful and will never forget this.  This will help us get through and will really help me get back on much better financial track instead of just drowning and constantly stressing about money on top of the kids medical issues. LOL my daughter just asked me why I was crying and I told her it was because some really nice people are going to help us with some things like they did with the Christmas tree because of Mommy not working as much to be able to take the other kids to the doctors all the time and she was like “well then why are you crying? isn’t that like a real miracle?” Haha. I told her they were happy tears. This is truly such an amazing local organization. I look forward to being able to pay it back when I’m in a better chapter of life someday. I seriously feel like I just had 500 lb lifted off of my neck and shoulders. It is people like you that allow people to stay positive during their worst times and make people know that there are people who do really care. Thanks again,December 2021 – after the Holiday Drive – I just wanted to thank you and everyone else involved with the donations. It means alot to us and is much appreciated.

March 2021 – from a mom after helping with a PECO bill:  What a surprise to receive your email about PECO.  You have a wonderful organization to help so many.  I never thought I would be in a position like I am.  Please know I do so appreciate your help and your organization.  What a wonderful group of people.  I hope I can someday give back to you to help others in need.  May God bless you and your group.  T&E Care is a wonderful group. 

March 2021: from a family after we paid a PECO bill:  Just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you and the generous donor who paid $200.00 towards my electric bill! You are all amazing people! I cannot thank you enough for all the generosity you have extended to my daughter and I through the years! You are truly angels!

March 2021: from a student we are supporting in college: I am a first year nursing student at DCCC. The tuition assistance that T&E care has provided for me has been an immense help in more ways than one. Had I not received such assistance I would not have been able to continue my education. Acquiring funding has been the biggest hinderance for me to achieve my educational goals. Having help with such a big financial responsibility has also helped me mentally and  emotionally, it has increased my ability  focus on my studies rather than focusing on such a huge financial burden all on my own, which would be virtually impossible for me to do alone. Accomplishing my educational goals will allow me to achieve financial stability and one day be able to give back to my community as T&E Care has so graciously done for me.

February 2021: From a mom who was recently contacted by the dentist letting her know our assistance had been approved: I got the call from my dentist this morning. I don’t think I’ve cried that much in a long time. (Happy tears) I’m beside myself with gratitude. My teeth are a disaster and have been for years. I don’t have insurance at the moment because I can’t afford to get any $ taken out my check so this is SO big. I can never thank you and your donors enough. I can’t believe I’ll be able to smile without keeping my mouth closed!!! Thank you thank you!

February 2021:  from a college student we support: I am a student at a local university and majoring in Biochemistry. I am going to be graduating in May of this year. For me to be able to say this sentence alone is all because of T&E Care. T&E Care has been helping me since High School; when my family first immigrated here, me and my siblings never asked our parents to buy our school supplies or get us a laptop because we knew we couldn’t afford it but somehow T&E Care found out about us and they dropped off bags full of school supplies for us. I still remember that day because we were ecstatic! They showed this generosity throughout high school. I was one of the first people to even apply for colleges in USA, and T&E Care guided me through it all. I remember my mentor would visit me during my free periods so we could work on my college essays. T&E Care has not only given me time but also really helped me financially. My parents had multiple kids attending college at the same time, and they both worked at minimum wage paying jobs at the time, hence, it was clear to me that asking them to pay for college would only make them suffer more and I was really embarrassed to ask them. Luckily, I never had to put the burden on them because T&E Care has always assisted me with tuition bills and had done so for past four years. I personally did not have to work overtime to pay to for my tuition which allowed me to focus much better on my studies. They even help with cost of textbooks which are so expensive that I cannot afford to purchase them on my own. T&E Care’s financial assistance has opened the doors of opportunities for me that I know would not be possible if I had to navigate through this process by myself. Everybody at T&E Care has been so kind for last 4 years to me and my siblings, and they truly have been a blessing; I sincerely hope that they can continue to bless many kids just like me to pursue their education without having to worry about their tuition in the future as well.

February 2021:  From a family receiving help with a PECO bill:  I want to thank this agency for helping people stay above water. I’ve never been here before. The last year has been horrible. When I lost my position, I lost stability and balance. I almost lost my mind with the wave of financial stress and grief after the loss of one of my parents. Fortunately, I am working again. However, it’ll be a while before things are normal. There’s so much debt to erase. Nevertheless, I am grateful to God for all of you. This agency kept me alive and moving in the right direction. Thank you for saving lives. Thank you for helping me with my PECO bill. 

January 2021:  From a family that has been supported the past few years:  We all just want to thank you for everything you do, and take the time to let you know how much we think of you. Thank you for supporting us all these years. We are forever grateful for the kindness you have shown us.  Stay safe!
