SPECIAL NEEDS FOR LOCAL FAMILIES
If you have the ability to help with any of these VERY important needs for a few of our local families - please let us know. The power of "community" can often make the impossible possible!
A family is moving into an efficiency and needs a small dinette set. (4 chairs, dark wood if possible), 7/15/16
Anyone have a gas dryer in good working order? We know someone who could use it. 6/10/16
We can always use laptops!!!! If you have a laptop that you think will still work well but you need to upgrade - let us know and we'll look at the old laptop! It MUST be a newer model than Vista (no XP units). We are also only licensed to take PCs. Thanks!
We also need computer mice - for desktops or laptops. We prefer the type that are plugged in with USB ports as opposed to wireless mice that need continual battery replacements! If you have any extra mice - let us know!
If you can help out with anything requested in the section above - please email us at email@example.com. THANKS!
On Sunday afternoon, May 22, 2016, three wonderful T&E Care volunteers, Nancy Higgins, Susan Stuber, and Carol Reagan, worked at the T&E Care booth at the Berwyn Devon Business & Professional Association event, Mayfest. This fun event is a great chance for the community neighbors to get to know various local businesses and organizations. Thanks to all who stopped by our table on this dreary day to say hi!
T&E Care and Amazon Smile T&E Care is now part of the Amazon Smile Foundation program. You might have shopped on Amazon.com and seen a notice to "click here" for a portion of your bill to go to a charity of your choice. This is just like the old Genuardi program that some of you might remember. You pay $xxx for a product. 0.5% of that price then goes to your designated charity. If you didn't designate a charity, Amazon would just keep the 0.5%. Your cost does NOT increase if you designate a charity!
So.... 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. It's easy to do but you need to register in advance (one time only):
Be sure you are signed into your own Amazon account.
Name your charity of choice: Tredyffrin & Easttown Care
That's it! It takes 30 seconds to do! You only need to name us once, and then we are the named site from then on. From then on always go to www.smile.amazon.com to start your shopping (instead of amazon.com) and it will always register this charity. (If you forget you'll get a notice reminding you when you go to amazon.com!)
This type of donation can really add up if lots of people sign up! Many thanks for your support!

Car Wash for T&E Care
Spa Car Wash in Berwyn is having a fundraiser for T&E Care! For any "Real Works Wash" (normally $24.99), you will get a $3 saving PLUS $5 will be donated to T&E Care.

Making a donation to T&E Care in lieu of a gift
Are you struggling to think of the perfect gift for the person on your list who has everything? Consider making a donation to T&E Care in his/her name? This option is always available - at the holidays or anytime of year. Information on making donations to honor others can be found on our donations page. A letter will be sent to your recipient alerting them of your kind donation (or we can send a card to you for you to wrap and give yourself).
Thanks for considering this option.
