How to Help

  1. Spread the Word. Tell other people about how special TARF is and encourage them to check out our website at www.TheresaFoundation.org.
  2. Make the Theresa Foundation your “Charity of Choice.” Make a donation to honor others, as memorial gifts, to increase your tax deductions or to make you feel good!!! Always think of the Theresa Foundation first in terms of giving! 100% of your donations go to fulfilling our mission of helping children with special needs and their families.
  3. Plan to Attend the Theresa Awards Dinner on April 30, 2010. In fact, plan to bring a friend or two. It is a special evening and a great way to introduce others to our Foundation.
  4. Support the Theresa Awards Dinner. We need committee members to help with the planning and implementation of the dinner. We also need contributions of silent auction items and/ or gift baskets. Items can be dropped off at the Theresa Foundation Office at 250 Lido Blvd. in Lido Beach, NY or contact Susan Russo at 516-432-0200 to arrange a pick up.
  5. Seeking “All Desserts” for our next Theresa Cookbook – Divine Desserts. Send us your favorite dessert recipes and then pass the word to your family and friends that you are a published dessert chef. Ask your family and friends to contribute as well. Go on line for our recipe form or call us at 516-432-0200 and we will send you the form.
  6. Consider giving Angel Food Cook Books to the Cooks in your Family. Theresa Cook Books make great gifts for those who like to collect down-to-earth recipes from around the country. Cook Books can be ordered on the website. They are $15.00 each or $25.00 for the 2-volume set plus $3.85 per book for shipping and handling.
  7. Always wear your Angel Pin! TARF Angel Pins are beautiful and definitely attract attention… allowing you the opportunity to tell others about Theresa. They also make nice gifts!
  8. Give the person who has everything… a Theresa Gift of Life Contribution. Theresa Gift of Life Cards honors someone with a donation and allows the Foundation to continue to support its mission. If you are that hard-to-buy-for person…. recommend that others give a contribution in your name when they give you birthday or holiday gifts.
  9. Register a Golfer for the Theresa Golf Outing on August 10, 2009. Golfers love any excuse to play and are especially generous at fund-raising events!
  10. Volunteer to serve on a Theresa Foundation Committee. If you have an expertise in grant writing or like to do fund raising or have lots of generous community connections or have some extra time to fill orders or answer the phone, we need YOU!
