Page 8 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • February 4, 2009 Emmanuel asks Can You Hel p? Our hat’s off to School 11 in Clifton for the recent food drive. We also thank the many contributors who helped out by giving the Pull-ups for Allie. We still have a need, so please contact us if you want to donate. A little heart to heart talk: Yes, there sure is a lot of talk about the economy and its definite impact on many of us. And I do believe that it is affecting many of us, some in big ways and others in small ways. We live in a relatively affluent part of the world, so we may be able to cope with this in the long term. The families we serve are in a different category for the most part. If you would permit me, here is a suggestion to think about: Keep the economy moving forward by contributing money to our cause and to other non-profits. We will frugally spend the money and benefit the families we serve and simultaneously stimulate the economy. Money circulates from one vendor to another, one person to another. Many unseen parties benefit from your kindness. You also benefit in many ways. Your financial gift gives back to you with a tax deduction. It also keeps your heart open because you are helping others -- regardless of how tough the person giving the money may be. The economy recovers somewhat, and more business gets done. Your action may stimulate and inspire others to act and improve their lives. There are probably a few other things we have not thought of as yet. Don’t think: Do! What else are you going to do while waiting for everything to get better? Involve your workplace this Valentine’s Day. If your group (work, place of worship, child’s sports team, etc.) is looking for something to do, consider a fundraiser or A charity drive is being run for the non-profit organization Cell Phones for Soldiers. Cell phones will be properly recycled and the payment received will purchase a calling card that will be given to a soldier serving overseas so he or she may call loved ones at home. Each donated phone provides one hour of phone time. Cell Phones for Soldiers charity drive There are collection boxes at Ramapo High School in Franklin Lakes, Eisenhower Middle School in Wyckoff, and Saint Elizabeth’s School in Wyckoff. Any questions or comments can be forwarded to Mackenzie Mosera, a sophomore at Ramapo High School, (201) 848-0951 or a food collection in the spirit of Valentine’s Day. You can donate any foods that are pink or red or have that color label on them. We have a big need for nutrient drinks, like Pedia-Sure and Ensure, that our kids use because they have some difficulty with the effects of chemotherapy. We have new families that have signed on for our services and requests for food from our families have doubled since May of last year. Some of their needs are: Pathmark, Shop-Rite, and A&P grocery store gift cards. Your contribution helps the family’s tight budget stretch a little more. Please keep donating those Pull-ups (size 4T-5T) and GoodNites brand diapers (for a person of 38 pounds) for four-year-old girl named Allie who is suffering from a aftereffects of Wilms tumor and surgeries that have left her with no ability to control her urination function normally.
