Deerfield Elementary S.A.I.L.S

17097746_10155078108121489_8289585425980032240_oThomas Richards Charity had the honor of helping out Megan Stockman’s MoCI (Moderately Cognitive Impaired) classroom called S.A.I.L.S at Deerfield Elementary. This class includes children K-5 who are taught (in addition to education), daily living skills.

Each week they are taught the skill of basic cooking. They “travel” around the United States and learn about each state through a weekly PowerPoint and Map activity. After that they cook a traditional recipe from that state at a level in which the vast of the K-5 group can achieve together. The money, sadly, is no longer available for this weekly curriculum. Megan refused to abandoned this cooking program as it makes these students feel so successful. She started paying for the ingredients her self before she was put in contact with TRC.

Thomas Richards Charity was excited to help out our “Community” and donated a Kroger gift card that will cover the groceries for the remainder of the school year. 

Matt Moscato Charity Golf 2016 Friday July 29, 1:00 Shotgun


The 2016 beneficiary of the Matt Moscato Charity Golf is Jennifer Willcock Taliercio

At age 39, Jennifer’s doctor said she was the youngest patient that he had ever diagnosed with Stage 4 COPD/Emphysema/ Alpha-1-Antitrypsin deficiency. Today she has only 18% lung function, permanently requiring her to be on oxygen. With her most recent CT scan showing several spots, we cross our fingers and hope the diagnosis doesn’t show cancer. Without a lung transplant, the doctors anticipate her ability to survive would only be five years, (we are in year four) she remains optimistic about a donor and match.

Consider this situation, add the compounded stress of mounting doctor and medication bills, the burden of wanting to contribute, but being unable to fully work…

Please help Thomas Richards Charity help Jennifer and her family during this difficult time.

The Matt Moscato Charity golf is Friday July 29, 2016 1:00 Shotgun at Sylvan Glen Golf Course and Camp Ticonderoga. More information coming soon.

7 Year Old Julian Needs Our Help


Julian Kampfschulte is a 7-year-old boy with a big heart and an even bigger smile. He loves drawing, playing pretend, Legos, and video games. He loves playing with and annoying his two sisters, and he really loves his mom and dad. Little Julian should have the rest of his life ahead of him to grow and play.

However, his family received a devastating diagnosis—Julian has a rare genetic degenerative brain disease known as Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). The disease ravages his brain.  His symptoms grow worse, including blindness, deafness, seizures, loss of muscle control, and progressive dementia. This relentless downward spiral will lead to permanent disability and death for Julian.  It has already begun to affect his vision and he can no longer hear.  All of this has happened in only a few weeks.

In the coming months, Julian’s family will need a tremendous amount of support. There are day-to-day needs, medical bills, medical equipment to purchase, household needs, loss of work and memories to create. There is no way to know the length of time this little boy will be with his family, and what expenses will accumulate.

How do you help a family headed on a journey to say goodbye?

Our goal is to provide them with resources to help keep Julian as comfortable as possible and help the family enjoy and treasure their remaining time together. We are hoping there will be time to arrange a special reunion or vacation, so the family can create memories that they will hold in their hearts forever.  Your donation will bless them along the way and allow them to focus on the time they have left together. Thank you for keeping Julian Kampfschulte and his family in your prayers.

Thomas Richards Charity is a 501(c)3 non profit charity, fully tax deductible charity donation.  Your donation will go directly to pay bills, buy supplies, create memories and help with lost wages over this overwhelmingly emotional time.
