We welcome Stop & Shop in Hillsborough and Raritan as generous providers to Bentley! We certainly are grateful for their donations of generous provisions for weekly distribution to our participant families. Thank you for your generous provisions.
Holiday wishes do come true for children 12 years of age and under in the Bentley program. “Be a Star, Brighten a Child’s Holiday” is the theme at The Learning Experience of Belle Mead this holiday season where the families of children enrolled at the center choose a star with a child’s name on it. On the back of the star, is a suggested holiday wish list for the child.
The holidays will certainly be brighter for these children because of the generous holiday giving from the families of The Learning Experience of Belle Mead. How fortunate and blessed are Bentley and The Learning Experience of Belle Mead? We are so thankful for the generous philanthropic giving of The Learning Experience.
Please show your support of Bentley Community Services and participate in Giving Tuesday, December 2, 2014, the national celebration of generosity. Your donation will help us further our important work with local impact. Please visit our website at www.bentleycommunityservices.org..Thank you!
WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?
We have a day for giving thanks. We have Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
- It’s a day to give a gift that makes an impact – right here in our own community.
- It’s a way to let your values be part of your holiday giving.
Please consider donating to Bentley this year! We certainly are grateful for your generous contributions!
Bloomberg delivered thanksgiving blessings to Bentley! A load of delicious gourmet pies from Griggstown Farm and baskets and boxes of non-perishable food provisions, not only for preparation of holiday meals but also to fill the shelves of the food pantry. Thank you for your generous donations. We are so thankful.
Our participant families learned such important information and gained valuable knowledge on how to prioritize their busy lives and manage their busy schedules in a more effective way. Thank you to Lorette Pruden who did such a wonderful job in facilitating the class, Montgomery United Methodist Church for hosting us and Griggstown Reformed Church for use of their projector. We are all certainly so grateful.
