Page 6 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • November 25, 2009 Emmanuel asks... Can You Help? Our hat’s off to Knights of Columbus Pope John XXII Council 5498 for the recent contribution for Thanksgiving baskets. We acknowledge the knights for their longtime and continual support. We also thank Eastern Christian Elementary School and Faith Reformed Church for their recent food drives for our food pantry. Important announcement: Please help Emmanuel Cancer Foundation with a click of a mouse: 4-29-09 karen/janine contestidea?ideaid=MTQ5. EmmanuelHelp3x.75(4-29-09) As many of you know, the Emmanuel 3 x .75 Cancer Foundation is fighting hard to keep our program intact in the midst of a suffering economy. The good news is that we’ve been nominated to receive a grant via Liquidnet’s $150,000 Local Impact Challenge, and we have a very, very good chance. Please copy and paste the link above into your web browser, and vote for the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation. Please pass this information onto everyone you know who might be willing to help us. All it takes is a few clicks. Thank you! We have a family who lives in Chester and we need a driver to deliver food to them once a month. The holidays are coming: The children of Emmanuel Cancer Foundation have given us their wish list for a holiday gift. If you would like to adopt a child for the December holidays, call (201) 612-8118. Please consider donating non-perishable items for a December holiday dinner for one of our families. You can also save time and purchase a gift card to any chain grocery store to donate. Figure out what it would cost to buy the ingredients for a holiday meal, including the turkey or ham, for a family of six. The amount of the gift card could be anywhere from $40 to $60 for the basics, or higher if you add extra things. If you prefer, you can put together a basket, bag, or box of non-perishable foods a family can use to create a holiday meal. Suggested items include stuffing, turkey gravy or gravy master, canned yams, a disposable turkey pan, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, canned pumpkin, pie filling, pie crust, loose items (fresh yams, potatoes, and onions), coffee and tea, cake mix and icing, pancake mix and syrup (for breakfast, of course!) and a chain grocery store gift certificate to cover the cost of a turkey and other fresh items. You can augment the dinner with a frozen turkey. Call us, and we’ll give you a family. All you need to do is assemble the foods and drop them off here at the Midland Park office. We will make the deliveries in time for the holiday. December holiday gift givers are now needed: If you or your group would like to participate in the holiday gift purchase for one of our kids this December, please call.
