Page 6 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • September 9, 2009 Emmanuel asks... Can You Help? News from Northern Region of the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation: Our hat’s off to the members of the Glen Rock Women in Community Service (WICS) for their recent contribution and for their ongoing support. We thank all the food con- 4-29-09 karen/janine EmmanuelHelp2x.75(4-29-09) 3 x .75 tributors who stepped up this summer to help us through our slowest time of year. Midland Park High School and Wyckoff’s Lincoln School get our belated thanks for their contributions given at the end of last school year. The summer was too short and now it is the beginning of a new school and college year. Ready or not, here it is! This year, we are asking community organizations such as schools, churches, temples, and places of work to consider becoming involved at a greater level. If you have not yet lent us a hand, we heartily invite you to make yourself known to us. Involvement can include a variety of activities: businesses can host a fundraiser such as a Dress-Down Day or a Golf Outing, or might contribute a certain percent of profits for one day. Schools can do a food collection, have a Pajama Day or Hat Day (everyone pays $5 for the privilege of wearing PJs or a hat to school), or host an event like a basketball game, a dance, or even a dance-a-thon and contribute the proceeds. Churches and temples can call us for a variety of suggestions including making a financial contribution, collecting non-perishable foods, assembling birthday bags, and purchasing gift cards. The economy has been challenging for many of us and we want to turn things around and get in the right direction. We need your help now so we can continue to provide all of the free services help to families who have a child dealing with cancer. For more information about us, log onto our website at www.
