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 2020
December 2020 – after the holiday drive: Thanking everyone at T&E Care for making our holiday so very special for us. What a wonderful caring community we live in. You have helped us through this difficult time of the year with your kindness and generosity you have afforded to us. A sincere recognition to everyone who gave their time to make sure our kids had a fun and so enjoy holiday! Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year!
December 2020 – after paying some college tuition bills for a student: Merry Christmas and Happy 2021! Thank you for all of your help with school. Words will never express how much it means to me. Because of people like you I am able to focus more on school without balancing a million things at once, allowing me to achieve all A’s this past semester! (A feat I thought impossible!) Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
December 2020 – after paying some bills for a resident, and including her in our holiday drive: I may not know you all personally—but I am glad that I know of the glowing and cardinal foundation on which your agency stands. This is a quick note to just say “thank you.” Daily, many agencies attempt to help folk and will give them food/items already preselected, while totally ignoring personal needs, etc. Yes, these items are a blessing but it’s so important to eat what you want and to be able to stand in line on your own two feet. I learned a lot in my religion classes. My teacher taught us the importance of allowing people to get their needs —to select their own food. Your variety of gift cards blessed me tremendously. Your kindness reminded me of my teacher’s awesome lectures. Thank you for giving us that freedom and those moments to exhale in the market and Target. (Smiling.) This morning, during my prayer time and reading, I took the crucial time to tell God THANK YOU. Not that I haven’t said it before—but I realized how bad it has been—not just for me —but for so many around the world. I realized that we often complain—drowning the blessings. If your help didn’t arrive during this season, I wouldn’t have much at all. Companies ended their grace programs. Things are under searing lights now. Your kindness blessed a very dark year. It gave me strength to get off of my couch of grief and depression. I was able to cook for my mom during the Christmas season. I still have a personal sanctuary I call home. I have a car-still. It’s been an EAT-PRAY-LOVE kind of experience. My mom and I feasted on your kindness but we also ate what we consider our favorite dishes. Prepping and cooking provided therapy. I was also able to use the Target gift cards to buy my mom some warm clothes, as her weight loss has limited her wardrobe. She was so surprised! I was able to get (preferred) personal care needs for myself that I haven’t been able to get in a long while. I also was able to buy a gift for my infant godson. I’ve been choking for close to ten months. However, I don’t look like my storm. Christmas was a blessed day. Thanksgiving was good too. (We even had a ham delivered to us by one of your beautiful donors.) I am still eating it! Indeed, we are grateful. I wanted all of you to know that I am beyond appreciative of everything. I was close to giving up. These times are beyond heavy. The sadness and uncertainty are burning pinches upon the climb. Nevertheless, I am learning to wake up with gratitude. I am learning to thank God hour by hour. And indeed, I thank God for all of you. I pray His abundance over you and your families. I’ll keep fighting for restoration. Thank you for not allowing me to drown. Have a blessed and safe New Year.
December 2020 – after paying rent for someone: I can’t even begin to express my full gratitude through email but I am so so soooooo happy and appreciative of the organizations help.
December 2020 – a note from one of our College graduates: I hope you are having a nice start to the holiday season! I am just emailing to say hello, and to share that I have officially finished my first semester of grad school! It has certainly been challenging, but I am very grateful to finally be learning all of the information I have been interested in for so long. This semester, we were predominantly virtual, with occasional in person opportunities. I spent most of my days on my laptop, either listening to lectures or studying them thereafter. Everyday I use the laptop that you and T&E Care gifted me a few years ago. Amidst this pandemic and the virtual learning, it has become almost like my right hand. I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for me and how the generosity of T&E Care continues to help me achieve my dreams! Merry Christmas!
December 2020 – after our Holiday Drive – Thank you so much for all your help for our family! I just opened the envelope for the T&E Care Christmas help… I am truly blown away! Thank you so much! I purchased some new clothes for the kids at Target and my Christmas dinner is set with the Wegman’s gift cards. You are a gift from God!
December 2020 – after our Holiday Drive – THANK YOU so much for the wonderful Christmas package! I cannot believe all the gift cards! And you found a smallish-sized hammer! And wrapped so pretty! Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and to T&E for their generosity.
December 2020 – after our Holiday Drive – I just bought our Christmas ham and the fixings with our gift cards. I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for your generous hearts and thoughtfulness during these trying times! From the ‘food it forward’ (such a treat to have take out) the gift cards to Walmart (multiple kids and the endless need for products) the Acme cards that provided food for our table and of course the counseling help for my child that needs extra support. I treasure the thought of all of you giving and thinking of others, sharing your time and running around in this pandemic (masked of course). So from my heart, please know you’ve blessed me and really helped my family!!
December 2020 – after the Paoli Hardware Store offered free Christmas trees: Just wanted to extend gratitude to T/E Care and the Hardware Supply store for the Christmas tree… kids were sooooo excited they put ornaments on the tree that very night!
December 2020 – after our Holiday Drive – Thank you so much — Please thank T&E Care for their most generous gift for the Acme. What a wonderful welcome surprise. This is a big help for me. May God bless each and every one that has made that possible. I look forward to the day that I can give back – so another can be blessed with your work.
December 2020 – after our holiday drive – Your help to make our holidays bright was very much appreciated. Our kids are going to be so very happy with their gifts, and to have the gift cards to help with some basics and a few gifts really lightens our load. Merry Christmas to all.
December 2020 – after our Holiday Drive – We are sending to you and T&E Care organizations millions of appreciation ! The gifts are wonderful and tremendous amount of gift cards! Today, we made our holiday shopping from our saved target list that were waiting for so long! My daughter is so so happy now with all her new things! You really made a sparkle in our days! Thank you so much! With best and warm wishes to you and your family for a magical season! Wish you lots of health and happiness in 2021!

November 2020 – after helping to cover a car repair: I just wanted to say thank you to you and the board of T&E Care for covering my car repair. All of the help has been amazing and appreciated. This was an expense that would have been hard to cover. It is hard to ask for help, but I really appreciate everything.
November 2020 – after our Thanksgiving Dinner Outreach – Let me first say that on behalf of my family I would like to thank T&E Care for all they do in the community and especially this year for my family and I. I know I will be in a better place one day and my family and I cannot wait to be able to give back. The Thanksgiving dinner provision was such a life changer and we appreciate that a lot.
November 2020 – after giving a mom some food gift cards: You have no idea how you and this gorgeous agency have blessed me. These times force many to crawl out of their corners of pride and ask for help. This agency has allowed me to do so with integrity. I am so thankful. It’s a blessing to walk into my favorite market and select what I want—what I need. In this searing era, a trip to Wegmans is a fun and soothing experience! Undoubtedly, I’ve never been here before. Each day comes with its own struggle. Nevertheless, I am grateful for my superb health, life-enhancing people like you, and my endless determination to get up. Thank you for encouraging my FAITH. Thank you for blessing my mood! Thank you for uplifting my Friday! Thank you, T&E Care! I could say so much more; just know that it’s people like you that turn dead situations into hopeful climbs. Thank you for saving lives! I am so grateful.
October 2020 – after helping a family with a school tax payment – Please thank the Board for me. It’s such a relief to help take the strain of lack of funds off my worries. Thank you — words can not say enough. May God bless you and all who helped me.
September 2020 – after making a car payment – I just want to thank the WHOLE T&E CARE (team). This issue I had was going on was killing me do to it being stressful and painful.

August 2020 – When we helped with some bills for a college-bound student – I am over the moon with the help T&E Care has been able to give me these past couple of months. You have no clue how much it means to me, thank you for all that you do and all that you are!
August 2020 – When we agreed to cover the cost of removing some large trees from a property that were dangerously leaning towards a house: You have no idea how much this means to me! Please express my gratitude to the board for this!! I’ll be able to sleep much better knowing my kids are safe when they’re sleeping.
August 2020 – After paying rent for someone: Wow! That is wonderful to hear and very appreciated. I was actually expecting a no and it would have been very understandable considering everything going on right now. But thanks so much. I could easily write two paragraphs about how relieved and fortunate I feel but I will respect your time and leave it short. I think you know how grateful I am though.
August 2020: After school and other gift cards were dropped off a mom said: I am OVERWHELMED with gratitude!!!! Honestly, I’m speechless!! You guys have done so much for me and my children!

July 2020 – after giving a family some help with meals during the pandemic – I want to try and convey just how deeply I appreciate your care for me. Recently a friend asked if I wanted to go out to dinner. Normally I would have to say no due to finances, but because you gave me a McKenzie gift card, I was able to enjoy a great meal with a friend at a lovely outside table. It was an exhilarating feeling! I also want to thank you for the gas card – it too came just in time as July is a month without a paycheck and is a tough month before school gears up again! I have been blessed by you and your extraordinary care. Peace.
June 2020 – after transferring a car to a family: The car is wonderful and the kids are really loving it!!!! I can’t thank you guys enough, may God bless you both. Please extend my gratitude towards the entire TE family. Since moving into the area almost ten years ago this organization has done nothing but help me and my family tremendously. I couldn’t be more thankful for you all, my children couldn’t be more thankful. So again, thank you and enjoy your summer as much as the gov’t allows you.
June 2020 – after paying rent for a family – We are so grateful for this gesture once again. You have really assisted us that words will fail us to actually express our profound gratitude. May you and your organization continue to grow from heights to greater heights. Once again we appreciate you.

Today was supposed to be my graduation but because of the virus the postponed it to August. I would not have been able to graduate college if it weren’t for the generosity of everyone involved with this organization. It’s people like you and organizations like T&E Care that make the world a better place and allow people like me to be able to succeed. I included a picture of me in my cap and gown but I’ll be sending more in August when I get to officially walk! Thank again from the bottom of my heart for everything.

April 2020 – after paying rent for a family: THANK YOU. It would be impossible to express the gratitude I have for T&E Care or the level of recognition your organization deserves but I will make an attempt. I was referred to T&E Care through a community member. After emailing your organization a board member was in contact with me shortly. She’s a wonderful person and was so kind and understanding in her efforts to help and find solutions to my situation. The financial assistance offered was uplifting and took a huge burden off my shoulders. The immediate help was greatly appreciated and can not be overlooked but what I find remarkable is knowing that a small local organization like T&E exists. Helping neighbors in the present and in tough times is absolutely wonderful but an organization making such positive impacts in their past and their future is the real value T&E brings to the community. I can’t thank all of you enough. I could ramble on for a few more paragraphs about how fortunate I have been to be connected with T&E Care but considering the current crisis I am sure you’re all a bit busy. I also couldn’t put into words how appreciative I am to do it justice anyway. I would just like the Board of Directors, the Auxiliary Board, Donors, Volunteers and anyone else associated with T&E Care to know how much I appreciate your help and that your efforts do not go unrecognized. I look forward to opportunities in the future to help other people in need and I hope to meet many of you once this crisis has calmed down.
April 2020 – after paying a few bills for a family during the crisis: Thank you so much for the gesture. We really appreciate this and pray for more of God’s blessings upon your organization. We are so grateful.

Words cannot express my gratitude to you. May God bless and protect each and every one of you as we all try to navigate through this challenging time. With my deepest thanks…

March 2020 – after paying a few bills for a local mom during the coronavirus crisis: Thank you so so much, this is such a weight off of us with all this unknown and we appreciate it so much. We talk all the time about how we can’t wait to be in a position to help support T&E Care and help other families who are going through difficult times because we know how amazing the support we received has meant for our family, especially Christmas time when it has made the world of difference for our children’s Christmas morning. I just wanted to say how much we appreciate you all.
March 2020 – after helping a single dad with some bills – OMG!!!! I cannot believe what I’m reading!! Yes let’s talk tomorrow. This is so unbelievably amazing in so many ways. I never thought this would happen. 😊❤️❤️❤️ I don’t know what to say. Thank you SO SO SO much. I am crying right now I am so touched and moved by this gesture. I didn’t think I was going to make it out of this nightmare. God 10000% is working through you. *** My friend said a prayer for me specifically as we hung up the phone last night. And the majority of it was asking for a huge miracle and a blessing out of nowhere that will rescue me from this. I have the chills right now. God is absolutely amazing. And you and your team must be something really special if He uses you to this magnitude and literally save someone’s life from falling apart.

March 2020 – after offering assistance to a family during the coronavirus crisis: Omg thank you so much. I almost started crying I got up to go to the porch to answer you because I didn’t want my children to see me getting emotional.

October 2019 – after fixing a car for a senior citizen: Just as I had begun to surrender to defeat, and start the process of accepting an impossible situation…. T&E Care came through I can’t tell you how nice it is to no longer breathe gas fumes or to face having to ride numerous buses to my medical appointments, with a painful foot. Thank you for providing the funds needed to replace my fuel pump. This has been a tough year for me so far, and your help has been such a redemption! If I can ever be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to let me know.
September 2019 – after helping a mom get settled into a new apartment after an ugly move: The move was hectic and great. Thank you and all of your team so much for helping to make it happen. You have relieved a huge burden from us, giving us room in our budget to be able to buy essential items for the new place. I have to say that I felt pretty ashamed to even ask for/need the help, but am ever so grateful to have received it. As my friend has counseled me of late, “accept the love.” So here I am, embracing it.

August 2019 – general letter of support from a mom: I am a disabled mother of multiple children. My family has suffered many hardships and without the amazing support of T&E Care, we would not be able to get school supplies, household items, holiday gifts, gas and grocery gift cards, as well as summer camps. As a proud, independent, individual it is hard for me to ask for help; however, when it comes to my children, I will do whatever I can to ensure they have what they need to succeed in school, over the summer, and life! I am indebted to T&E Care for everything they have done for me and my family. Our life has been difficult due to my illnesses and economic down turn of our finances, it has been a miracle and a blessing to know that there is an organization I can reach out to that will assist in any way they possibly can, it gives me peace of mind, one less thing to stress over. Without the help of T&E Care, I shudder to think where my children and I would be right now. Thankfully, I do not have to worry, I know they are an e-mail away and will assist with everything they can. The services offered by T&E Care are invaluable to our community. They are an absolute blessing to those of us that are fortunate enough to receive assistance without judgement and embarrassment.
May 2019 – from a recent college graduate that we had been supporting: This Saturday, I graduated from college. As I reflected on my time in school, I thought about all those that helped me along the way. I am so grateful for all that T&E Care has done for me.

Like every time I am sharing one more achievement, I feel proud and emotional that I was able to save and not depend on T E for the huge leap I took this time. I am not sure how to explain but you all have touched my life immensely and the gratitude I have is not explainable. I am carrying forward all the help and passing it over to many more who are in need in whichever way I can. The battle is never-ending and draining but I have extended family like you all to vent. I am in loss of words while typing this good news to you all. Additional good news I applied for citizenship and cleared the test. I got my naturalization a week ago. Thank you so much. HUGS.
March 2019 – from an adult who needed help with rent after her mom died – Thank you so very much, again, for your help during this challenging time.

WORDS OF CARE 2018
- December 2018 – after our holiday drive: Thank you! I hope you had a wonderful holiday and a happy new year. I cannot thank your organization enough for all you do for us during the holidays. Made this an extra special Christmas since my son was able to get leave. We all love our gifts and thank you again. He has a long drive back but I’m so grateful he was able to come home and your organization made this a great Christmas for us all. Thank you and God bless you and everyone at TE Cares.
- December 2018 – after our holiday drive: I just wanted to send a big thank you to everyone involved in the T/E Care community! You guys made our Christmas that much more special! My daughter was so excited on Christmas morning! I can not express how grateful we are for all of your generosity with the gifts, food and gift cards! God Bless all of you! We are so eternally grateful!! Happy New Year!
- December 2018 – after our holiday drive: I can not thank everyone enough, from the bottom of our hearts, for the amazing holiday presents! Your kindness and generosity brought tears to my eyes, when the person who delivered the items opened up the back of her SUV and said “all of this, is yours!”. I will never forget that moment. It truly means so much, during a personally challenging time. My goal is to soon be helping on your side, to give back to others who would benefit, by volunteering with this wonderful program in the future. Thank you once again and have a happy new year!
- December 2018 – after our holiday drive: I just want to take this opportunity to thank you and everyone involved in the holiday gift drive.I can’t believe the amount of generosity. My cupboards have never been full before, and I am eternally grateful. It wasn’t easy leaving my marriage, but I finally found the strength to do so. It hasn’t been easy living paycheck to paycheck. Having received such wonderful gifts has allowed me to save money on all those essential living items. I never splurge on treats and seeing my son devour the cookies in a single sitting, made me remember how much he loved them. I could go on and on for each and every item delivered. Please know that I am truly thankful and will let nothing go to waste. Kindly express my gratitude to everyone involved. My prayers go out that each and every one of you to have the merriest of Christmases ever!
- December 2018 – after our holiday drive: I wanted to send you a quick message to thank you for the delivery. My family and I really appreciate all of your help. If there’s anything I can do in return, please do not hesitate to contact me. God bless you and happy holidays to you. Thank you sincerely.
- December 2018 – after our holiday drive: I can’t express my gratitude for the gifts we received today. I shed tears of joy and gratitude when opened the “happy holidays” envelope and bags with gifts. We have never received so many gifts for past couple years. I believe in miracles and T&E care with its wonderful sponsors and volunteers are the evidence that miracles happen and that our world is full of kind and incredibly generous people. Just yesterday night, I was thinking about what to shrink and where to trim this month in order to buy winter boots for my daughter and car seat for my baby boy, since my friend, who gave me her car seat to use, just had her own newborn recently). And ta da…I was astonished by so many gifts delivered to us today!!!! I am literally dancing all day long today! Ohh… and those delicious cookies, my daughter sang all evening “ they are my most favorite cookies in the world ”. (She didn’t see the beautifully packed gifts for her yet. I will be putting them under the tree on Christmas eve.) This year was one of the hardest, because I lost the apartment of my dear departed parents, but at the same time one of the happiest years with the birth of my second child. I am so lucky that I relocated to this area. T&E care and it’s supporters are the great example how we should raise our children and I wish we can help someone one day like you do for so many families. Thank you so much for making our holiday season so magical. And I wish everyone a lot of health, happiness and miracles in their lives! Happy holidays

- November 2018 – a note of thanks at Thanksgiving – I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all (the entire T E Care team) for your support. The monetary support, meals/food, grocery, resources, emotional help, car, rent, bills ….the list goes on. All of this took a lot of stress off of me. It helped me stand up and take time and figure out what our life is going to be and how I can navigate through daily challenges. I am not sure how we would have been able to make it through this trying time without the help from friends like you. I really value your friendship, and I’m so grateful to have you our my life. I would also like to add that these words are not enough to thank for what you all have given to us in physical and non-physical form. I pray to god to give more people like you to society for all of us to live happy and secure.
- October 2018 – after offering holiday assistance to a family we were told: Our family can be removed from your list. As a matter of fact- I would like to shop for a family. I’m sure you get many happy endings with all of the great work you do! Through my divorce I was forced to close a business and could barely make ends meet but keeping my kids in the family home in this amazing school district was top priority. As I struggled to get my head above water the kids really never knew… thanks to you they had school supplies on the first day of school, and they went to camp and had warm winter clothes and much more! Thank you for getting us through the really rough times! Now it’s our time to help others! What you do is amazing!!!! I thank God for the struggles because now I truly appreciate the easy days!

I am going to now try to go back and finish up, everyone I am around says you need to go back you know so much. That’s my goal. I am sooooo happy that the board members could help me purchase a car that is suitable and very capable of helping me continue to work and take care of my family and later try to return to school.
