Page 4 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • October 7, 2009 Emmanuel asks... Can You Help? News from Northern Region of the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation: Our hat’s off to Paul and Bianca Caprio for their birthday party. Their guests were asked to bring gifts for Emmanuel Cancer Foundation children. It always warms my heart to hear of children unselfishly giving to other children like these two just did! We thank Brownie Girl Scout Troop #1168 of Ho-HoKus for the food collection. The eighth grade Teen Canteen at Eisenhower School also collected food for our pantry. We thank in advance Legend’s Steakhouse in Midland Park for hosting its first Golf Outing to be held Monday, Oct. 19 and benefits the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation.

This year, we are asking the community, including schools, houses of worship, and places of work, to consider becoming involved with us at a greater level. Whether you currently help us or never have helped us in any way, we invite you to get involved at this critical time. Many non-profit organizations such as ours have experienced a significant drop in financial and material contributions. Involvement can take many forms, but doesn’t have to take a lot of time. For example, businesses can host a fundraiser such as a “Dress Down Day, when employees make a donation to wear casual clothes,” host a Golf Outing, or contribute a certain percentage of profits for one day. Schools can collect non-perishable food items, or raise funds for ECF by hosting a “Pajama Day” or “Hat Day,” when everyone pays $5 for the privilege of wearing PJs or a hat to school. Schools can also fundraise by hosting a basketball game or a dance and charging admission. Churches and temples may call us for a variety of suggestions, including making a financial contribution, collecting non-perishable foods, assembling birthday bags, or purchasing gift cards. We need your help now so we can continue to provide all of the free services help to families with a child who is battling cancer. Manny is now two years and three months old and has been meeting a big life challenge by combating leukemia since he was diagnosed last summer. Manny has two brothers, Johnny, 11, and William, 6. The boys’ parents are John and Alicia. John works for a delivery company and has had his hours cut back. Mom was cleaning homes, but quit to help Manny get to frequent doctor visits. He has had complications from the bone marrow transplant he had earlier this year. The family could use gift cards for gasoline stations, and clothing or department stores. The boys love Legos and Transformers and would be happy gifts of these items (new or used). This family has been struggling to keep things together and would be grateful for any help. A financial gift to our Family Financial Fund helps this family and many other families we serve. Call us at (201) 612-8118 before you stop by. Please do not leave items at the center without checking with us first. Our storage space is limited. Hours are Monday, 10 to 1; Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 to 5; and Thursday, 10 to 2. The Northern Regional Center is located at 174 Paterson Avenue, Midland Park, NJ 07432. Visit us on the web at As always, thank you for helping the children and their families!
