The Winter Book Drive Starts Monday December 3!

The annual GTMS Holiday Book Drive runs next week from December 3rd-7th.

This year's drive benefits Turning Points for Children, the leading social service agency in Philadelphia.  Turning Points 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 book, toy and pair of pajamas for the holidays.  

Turning Points has requested that Greene Towne focus on donations for the newborn to preschool age range this year.   Follow this link for an Amazon "wishlist" of books to donate:   https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/giftlist/2SJI39G8LPGOQ/ref=cm_gl_huc_view  Please do not feel limited to books on the list if you want to add a more personal touch!  Pajamas and new unwrapped toys may also be donated.  Donation boxes will be located at the entrances of both the East and West buildings. 

 

Donations will be accepted through the morning of December 7th.  We realize this drive comes on the heels of the Food Drive and during a busy holiday season. Thank you for your continued generosity and annual support of Turning Points for Children!
