Dreams Come True
Dear Ms. Duffy & Friends at the Business Benefits Group,
You have truly made a difference in the life of a child! Thank you for your generous donation. Please be assured that 100% of this gift will be used to create joy and hope for a local child battling a life-threatening illness.
In our 31-year history, more than 3,400 children have experienced the joy of a dream realized. More children are referred to use everyday.
With your continued love and support, Dreams Come True will continue to lift the spirits of our community’s brave children and provide memories of a lifetime. Thank you for making dreams come true!

Dear Business Benefits Group,
You all are amazing! Thank you so much for your incredible donations to our No Sale Yard “Sale.” It was an unexpected windfall to get household goods, furniture, and clothes from your group, and the range of options certainly helped us to raise money to support our Food 4 Thought program.
The No Sale Yard “Sale” is held twice a year at Daniels Run ES. Its primary purpose is to get clothes and goods into the hands of our community members who are struggling financially. And really, the event is for everyone. Children grow quickly, so it’s nice to be able to turn in a gently worn dress or pair of shoes, and possibly find something in the next size up. Some of our families who need it most leave with a garbage bag full of clothes for themselves and their children. We figure that regardless of a family’s financial situation, most people want to contribute in whatever way they can: Some volunteer at the event, while others donate a few dollars.
Nothing is tagged in our “Sale.” People drop money into a donation bucket on their way out if they want to. Largely due to your generosity we raised $460.00 for the Food 4 Thought program, which now serves 90 students per week.
Please know that your efforts in gathering together items for the community were well worth it!
Anything that was not “sold” was donated to Purple Heart.
We will keep you posted on future events. Enjoy the spring!
Daniels Run Elementary School
Thanks so much to you and your colleagues for the generous food donation to the Daniel’s Run Food 4 Thought program. Your contribution is particularly helpful during these challenging winter months, and allows us to provide large quantity of food for the long weekends and snow days. We so appreciate your support!
