T&E Care March 2019 Clothing Drive

A Note from our friends at T&E Care: 

T&E Care is looking for donations of new or gently used clothing for infants through teens for its upcoming Kids’ Clothing Event.  Items can be dropped off anytime between March 20-29 at any of the local TESD schools, Tredyffrin Public Library (Wayne) or the Easttown Library (Berwyn).   Please only drop items off when the schools/libraries are open. Clothing for all seasons, plus good quality shoes, boots, coats, belts or other accessories will be accepted.  Again this year is a teen girls Pop-up Shop – so lots of teen girls clothes will be needed to help make this part of the event extra special! For a list of items not accepted, and for other information, please go to www.tecare.org.

 

Save the Date

Be sure to also mark your calendars for the Kids’ Clothing Event itself, Thursday, April 4 (4-8) or Friday, April 5 (9-noon) at St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church at 600 Walker Rd in Wayne.  This fundraiser for T&E Care is a great chance for everyone to restock your kids’ closets with great quality clothes. Questions, please contact T&E Care at clothes@tecare.org.
