Holiday Book Drive Starts MONDAY, December 4!

The annual GTMS Holiday Book Drive runs next week from December 4th-8th.

Who benefits: Turning Points for Children is the leading social service agency in Philadelphia. It offers a variety of programs that help families raise safe, healthy, educated, and strong children. Through its Brighter Holidays Project, Turning Points aims to give over 5,000 children under their care a new pair of pajamas, a book and a toy 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


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, pajamas and new unwrapped toys (please see the wish list for suggestions) may also be donated.  We will have collection boxes at both East and West entrances.  


When: Donations will be accepted through the morning of December 8th.

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.
