The Holiday Book Drive is Underway!

The annual GTMS Holiday Book Drive is under way and runs through Friday, December 9th.

Who benefits: Turning Points for Children is the leading social service agency in Philadelphia. They offer a variety of programs that help families raise safe, healthy, educated, and strong children. Through their Brighter Holidays ProjectTurning Points aims to give over 3,500 children under their care a book, a toy and a new pair of pajamas for the holidays.  

How we can help: Turning Points has provided a list of suggested books to donate.  Many of these books are required reading books for the District of Philadelphia; prices range from about $4-18 each. 

 

Where: Follow this link to Turning Points' Amazon Wish List: AMAZON WISHLIST

 

Please do not feel limited to items on the list.  If you would like to add a more personal touch, Turning Points welcomes your child's favorite book.  As in prior years, new unwrapped toys (please see the wish list for suggestions) and pajamas may also be donated.  We will also have collection boxes at both East and West entrances.

 

When: Donations will be accepted until the morning of December 9th.

We realize this drive comes on the heels of the Food Drive and during a busy holiday season.  The GTMS Drives Committee thanks you for your continued generosity and annual support of Turning Points for Children.
