Freedom to Shop With Shopping Carts!

We are so thankful and blessed having moved into our new and larger, expanded facility.  In fact, our families now have shopping carts to shop with!  Our generous providers are so supportive and helpful. Thank you to ShopRite, Hillsborough, Trader Joe’s, Stop & Shop, Hillsborough and Stop & Shop, Raritan for their generous donation of two shopping carts each.  The shopping carts are of tremendous help and we thank you.

Participant families shop weekly with the freedom to make decisions and choices based on their family’s needs from a full range of healthy groceries and other provisions where we offset their grocery and basic needs bill.

End of Year Tax-Deductible Generous Donations

There are still several days left until the end of 2014.  Please make a generous tax-deductible donation to Bentley at www.bentleycommunityservices.org and visit our DONATION page.  Please help us to further our important work now and in the future and help us to provide delicious, healthy and nutritious food provisions and crucial basic needs to struggling, working families who do not receive assistance but are in need of help in this unstable economy.

We certainly are very grateful for your end of year donations.

How Beautiful Are These Scarves?

Gracious employee elves from Bloomberg used their talents and gifts to decorate winter scarves and donated these personalized holiday gifts to Bentley for distribution to the participant families!  How thoughtful and giving of Bloomberg once again to make the holidays even more special for Bentley families, keeping the chill in the air at bay by these warm winter scarves.  We all are so blessed and grateful!

Holiday Wishes Do Come True

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.
