Fall Fest 2015
Saturday, November 7, 2015
St. Davids Golf Club, 6:30-11
Wow - that's all we can say! The event at St. Davids was a HUGE success and LOTS of fun for everyone involved. More details to follow but for EVERYONE that had anything to do with the event - planning, soliciting auction prizes, sponsoring, buying raffle tickets, bidding on auction prizes, sponsoring a child, attending, or just making a donation - please know that we THANK YOU!!!!!!
Check our our Fall Fest page for lots more details, pictures, and a great video of the event.
And Help Local College Students - What a huge success!
When a student heads to college - he can get scholarships, grants, and loans to cover the costs of tuition, room, and board. But those books - wow are they expensive! It can be so hard to get the funds to cover them. We've actually worked with kids who dropped out of school because they couldn't afford the books!
On Aug 7, 2015, the Devon branch of TD Bank ran a one-day fundraiser to help us cover the costs of the books for a number of the students we support. Everyone was encouraged to gather up all lose change and take it to the branch and have it counted at the Penny Arcade. TD Bank matched up to $2000 all the change it counts that day. (There was a little confusion about this aspect of the program - but all change counts WERE counted, whether you donated or not - we did confirm this!) We are excited to say that, in any case, over $2000 was counted - so we got the full amount from TD Bank - PLUS a number of folks just let T&E Care keep the change. That total is not in yet - but we should have well over $1500 in additional donations. That's a LOT of loose change! Think how much lighter our purses and pockets will be - our back doctors will be happy with this fund raiser!
Thanks to all who stopped by and contributed to this cause. If you did stop and need a receipt for your donation - please contact us with details at firstname.lastname@example.org
May 17, 2015 was a great day in Berwyn! The Wellness Festival drew over a thousand folks with lots of great kids games and activities.

Lots of food was also collected for the local REACT Food Pantry run by Mabel Purcell. The highlight of the event was the presentation to T&E Care of a check from Panera Bread for $2539.54! This donation from Panera came from the collection boxes at the check-out stations at the Gateway Panera Bread, with collections being gathered since their opening in April, 2008. Panera also matched the donations with an additonal 25¢ for each $1 donated. MANY thanks to Panera for the bread bowls and this donation, to Art Roman for donating the supplies and his kitchen for the soup, and to all those who came to make the event a success!

SHOP IN PAOLI DAY - SATURDAY, APRIL 12, 2008
On Saturday, April 12 the TE North MOMS Club hosted a "Shop in Paoli Day" to raise funds for T&E Care. TE North MOMS Club is a group of local moms who offer support for each other, and do helpful activities in the community. For more info about this group go to http://www.momsclubtenorth.com/ or http://www.momsclub.org/.
For their Spring 2008 activity they offered to help T&E Care! The idea was that when you shopped at specific stores in Paoli on that day either a percentage of the sales went to T&E Care, or T&E Care received gift cards (to give to families in need) directly from the stores. Participating stores included The Blue Tulip, Polka Dots, Chico's, Julie's Gold Ribbon, Terra Culture, Van Cleve Collection, Robinson's Luggage, Paoli Hardware, Talbots, Paoli Nails, and Gentlemen's Choice. MANY thanks to all those participating businesses, and very special thanks to the community members who went shopping on this day - over $700 was raised!!!!! Wow! LOCAL families will really benefit by your generous help.
PANERA BREAD FUNDRAISER - April 5, 2008 What a fantastic time had by all those who were able to attend the Panera Bread practice opening on April 5. 2008. Over 200 community members were in attendance. The folks at Panera Bread outdid themselves - the free food just kept coming and coming! The staff clearly got well-trained for their official opening this week. Please stop by and show your appreciation to the Panera Bread staff for giving us such a fun opportunity to thank the community for your continued support. We did take up a collection at the dinner so we could send some money to some of the families whose homes were destroyed last week in the big apartment fire in Malvern. Over $1200 was raised in just 1 1/2 hours. You guys are terrific!!!
One final note - remember that Panera Bread will have donation boxes for T&E Care on their counters ALL YEAR LONG. And they will match any donations that come in with 25¢ for each $1.00 donated. Remind your friends about this easy way to increase your donation!
