C.P. School needs items

The children at the Cerebral Palsy School need appropriate toys.
Mainstream toys are for children who have use of both hands.The
children here often have one side of their body effected.This makes
playing with alot of toys difficult which leads to them becoming frustrated.
Toys needed are musical instruments such as harmonicas.
Play Doh,soft puzzles,Etch a Sketch,shake n Bobble Vehichles,
soft balls ofdifferant sizes and Building Blocks.These type of toys help
develop their Sensory Development
  Also desperately need wheelchairs for when they
go on day trips.

Request from Peachess

Animal rescue asked for help.Their donataions
are so low.And they are desperate for dog,cat and
bird food.Good condition pet toys,litter,litter boxes,
pet carriers and leashes.

Another email from very young mom asking for help

Hi,i am 16yrs old.I live in New York.I wish I lived near you
so maybe your organization can help me.No one ever helps
each other in New York.Everybody in a hurry to even see if
you need something.I had twins Skyler and Tyler they weighed
3.3lbs.Yes they  were very early.Wont come home for awhile.
I have hardly anything for them because I did not know I was

Good  news! We have a volunteer name Debbie who said
she  will be mailing you a package of baby items to help you.
Some hospitols have parenting classes.Why dont you see if
the hospitol where your babies are staying offer this service?
Also I am certain Welfare can assist you with WIC ,etc...
                         Good luck....

A Raffle Basket for US!!

One of our volunteers has a space in an Ocean County consignment shop.  When she told the owner about us and the work we do, the owner decided to raffle off a picnic basket for July 4th with the proceeds being donated to Reys of Hope.  We are thrilled!  Apparently, they've already raised some money!!  Here's a picture of the basket:

If you'd like to stop in and shop at this very cute little shop, it is named BloomingDeals and is located on Route 9 in the Parkertown Area of Little Egg Harbor Township on the way to LBI.  They have lots and lots of great items - household, clothing, books, you name it!!  Plus, if you visit, you can see the basket when you walk in the door and maybe buy a raffle.

A Question we recently recieved

Do you help only people who are religous?
No we try to help who ever needs it.Regardless
of their color,sex status or religous beliefs.
We are not here to judge others we are here
to help our fellow man.


Treat people how you would like to be treated.
If you have nothing good to say then its better to say nothing.
Love thy neighbor as you love thyself.If the neighbors aren't
nice love them from a distance  LOL

A Request from Reading Pa.

I am writing to your organization to ask is there any way
that anyone comes to Pa?I have put several
requests asking for toys for our low income day care center.
All the toys we had were taken from one of the women who use
to volunteer for us.The children do not have hardly any
toys to play with when they are here.Because we are
a low income center the families really can not afford to
replace the toys for their children.I even put request on several sites
under Pa.No one has responded.

We appreciate your request and our hearts go out to you.We have
quite alot of toys and books we could donate to you if you were
in N.J or could meet us half way.Regretfully we do not have anyone
who travels to Pennsylvania.Sorry we could not assist you.I will keep
your address just incase we hear of anyone headed in that direction.
You are in our prayers and hopefully someone will help you soon.

Walkers recieved for those in need

 Debbie our volunteer from Tomas River starts early in the mornings.She delivered some walkers for us to give to Dorothy.Few women at section 8 apartments use canes but have alot of difficulty getting around.We are certain these will give them more balance.

Meet the doll babies

Father John is trying to get the girls to look at the camera.
The bags on their porch have clothes for all Seasons which should last them until following year.Pjs and socks for the girls and underwear for the father.
But as you can see the girls were more interested in the dolls then anything else we gave them.
The third little girl was at the Speech Therapist.She has been having problems talking.There is a good chance its emotional since it started shortly after mom left them last Christmas.Posted by Picasa
