 PHILADELPHIA, PA

Hi, I know you all recognize this wonderful lady.  Ms. Theresa Stewart of Springside Chestnut Hill Academy. To all of the graduates of Springside School and Chestnut Hill Academy, faculty and staff (former and present) Theresa needs our help.

Miss Theresa has been at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy for over 25 years.   She has watched us all grow and cared for  each and everyone of us.  She always remembered what each student and faculty member liked and made your sandwich with extra care.   
Well now I ask that all of us show Miss Theresa a whole lot of care.    Theresa is facing a $17,000 medical bill and now her car has died too.  Over the years Theresa's position here at school has moved from a school employee to an outsourced employee.   Her benefits were slashed as she lost seniority with the new companies.  Her position was made part-time.   Theresa needed surgery, but she put it off until she could save money and also made it onto Medicare.   Her surgery was successful, but not until after spending over 24 hours in the recovery room.  If the hospital had admitted her, Medicare would have covered it, but it was supposed to be an "in and out" same day surgery.   So the medical decisions made were for the benefit of Theresa medically and the hopsital financially.    It will take Theresa another lifetime to pay off this bill as well as buy a new car.   

If every student, faculty, staff member who ever had one of Theresa's sandwiches contributed what it would cost to buy a sandwich loaded with ingredients and love, I know we could make a difference in her life. 

Please contribute now.    If you have any questions, please email me at school.    Monica Siltman

To everyone. A note from Theresa.... To the youngest to the Head of School, About a week ago I was stopped in the cafeteria, doing my usual thing and to my surprise a teacher came to me and mentioned they were doing a fundraiser on my behalf, “isn’t that so awesome.” In came another teacher who embraced me and said, “You’re so blessed.” again mentioning the fundraiser. I didn’t know what to say and I did not feel comfortable. I didn’t know about any fundraiser. Then Monica came by and said, “Theresa are you mad at me?’ as she told me she set up a Go Fund Me page to help with some difficulties I was facing. I was so overwhelmed. My heart started to palpitate. I was so full of joy and appreciation. I was almost afraid to accept. After seeing and reading the hundreds of comments from the youngest to the Head of School I felt truly honored. The comment of a favorite student from almost 15 years ago was so touching. I was overwhelmed that all of you care so much. There have been times when I felt so unwanted and unappreciated, but all of you have changed all that for me. I thank you for all the thoughtfulness and kind words. I will never feel unwanted and underappreciated again. Thank you for loving me so much. Truly yours, Theresa

her situation hit my heart deeply and I pray for her Health and financial blessings to overflow abundantly and in all aspects of her life. All I can think about lately is the warming glow you get within your soul knowing someone or of someone as generous and kind as Miss Theresa and all the (sandwiches) she shared that meant so much to so many. whomever started this fund for her is a true angel.
