There are many ways to make donations to T&E Care. Of course we'll take donations of cash or gift cards. We'll take donations of computers, furniture, household items, food, and even cars! During certain times of year we take donations of clothes, school supplies, or holiday gifts. Below are the links to many pages that explain how these donations can be made.
FINANCIAL DONATIONS: You can make cash donations just because you want to support our cause. Or maybe you want to honor or remember someone important to your life. You can mail us a check, or make a donation with Paypal. We like matching gifts when they are possible. Or if you'd rather just send donations in the form of gift cards, that works as well. It's always good for us to have an inventory of gift cards when a family has a special and immediate need. Click HERE for more details about making a financial donation to T&E Care.
SPONSOR A CHILD: If you'd like to make a donation toward a specific type of program for a local child, then click on this link to see the options listed.
DONATIONS OF STOCK: Giving long-term (owned more than a year), appreciated securities may provide a great benefit to you and Tredyffrin & Easttown Care. First, you will receive a tax deduction for the full market value of the securities as long as you have owned them for at least one year. Second, you avoid the capital gains tax that you would owe if you sold these securities. More details can be found HERE.
DONATIONS OF CARS OR SERVICES: There are many families who are frozen in place because they have no car. They are unable to get a job because they can't get to one. (Public transportation is not user-friendly on the Main Line!) They can't save up to get a car because they have no job. A donated car saves them the need to worry about monthly car payments - which is huge for families on the edge. If you have a car that you'd be willing to donate or sell cheap - let us know!! (You will get a tax donation.) Remember - we need the cars to be in decent working order. We don't want to give a family that struggles a car that doesn't work - that won't solve any problems! More details can be found HERE.
Also - if you run a company that does work on cars, and would be willing to donate an oil change or other basic service, we'd love to add you to our T&E Care Car list. The $40 needed for an oil change can be daunting to many families, so the oil change doesn't happen. Knowing we can offer a family the option of a free oil change now and then can be extremely helpful! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to help us out! More details can be found HERE.
DONATING COMPUTERS: "Having a computer is as important as breathing air." That is what one student said to him when we gave him a computer for school. He KNEW that he was at a HUGE disadvantage without a computer as compared to his peers. Click HERE for more details on donating a computer to T&E Care.
DONATING FURNITURE: If you have some furniture items, appliances, or other household items to offer, let us know. We have no storage, so we will only take items we know we need. But we know of lots of other great organizations that do have storage, so if we can't take the items, you can find other options on our website.
DONATING CLOTHING: Each Spring T&E Care will host a Kids Clothing Grab Bag, and we'll be looking for LOT of donations of clothing for kids. We needed LOTS and LOTS of clothes for this event. If you have clothes to offer for this event or at any time - send a note to us at email@example.com. (Note: as with the furniture, we have no storage, so if we have no requests for clothing - then our webiste links other options for your donations.)
DONATING BABY/CHILDREN ITEMS: As with furniture - we have no storage, so if you have any baby items to offer, let us know. If we can use them we'll certainly let you know. If we can't, our website has locations that might work for your donations.
DONATING FOOD: We will definitely accept donations of food during our annual Holiday Drive, and any other time we have a specific request for help. All other times we know that the local food cupboards would welcome any donations of food. Infomation about these organizations can be found HERE.
