2015 KID'S CLOTHING GRAB BAG
Another HUGE success!
The 2015 Kids Clothing Grab Bag is over for 2015. What a magical experience this is! All the donations - wow!!! And all the volunteers - another WOW!! SPECIAL thanks to the chairs Lisa Davis, Jennifer Arnott, Carol Tompkins, Jeanette Alwine, and Pam Emel - we couldn't have pulled it off without them! And a VERY special thanks to St. Matthews United Methodist Church, led by Pastor Lillian Smith. Once again they couldn't have been more gracious hosts for a very busy event! A huge shout out as well to CHS Junior Maddy Prachar who conceived of the idea of a Teen Girls room, worked out all the details, did all the set up, and pulled it off with expertise. She is an amazing young lady! (Thanks to her mom, Kristen, as well - we know she was a big help as well!!)
Please check our Grab Bag page for the specific details and results of the event, lots more thanks, and some really great pix!
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!

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.
