2018 Holiday Drive for T&E Care
Once again the holidays are looming and some people right in our communities struggle to afford gifts for the kids or the food needed for a special holiday meal. Tredyffrin & Easttown Care is a local non-profit that helps local families throughout the year with emergency situations, as well as offering assistance at the holidays.
The T&E Care annual Holiday Drive has started and runs through December 1st.  Over 100 local families are on the list this year. Donations of gifts, food baskets, cleaning supplies, gift cards, and other items are needed.  Drop-offs should come to St. John's Presbyterian Church in Devon on either December 2 (Sunday) or 3 (Monday). Help is also needed Dec. 2-6.  Please check our website,  www.tecare.org to see if there is anything you could offer in terms of time or donations. Questions can go to  holidays@tecare.org .  This is truly a neighbor helping neighbor event!
