Philadelphia Book Bank: Run by Reading Recycled, the book bank helps teachers and the community get books and resources for the children they serve. The Book Bank is member supported through annual dues of just $25. In exchange for those dues, Book Bank Members receive up to 400 books per school year, as well as classroom supplies, with a combined value of over $4,000.
Activity: We will sort and box up books to be used by classroom teachers in the fall. Note: They have plenty of books but they need a lot of help sorting them.
Location: Inside Martin Luther King High School, 6100 Stenton Avenue, Philadelphia
(Detailed directions to enter the building will be provided.)
Parking: There is a parking lot at the school
Coordinator: Mary Klein
Maximum number of volunteers: 15
In Honor of the 10th Anniversary of the Giving Circle highlighting the “Year of the Child”, TTN Philadelphia is joining with Giving Circle members to make June “Volunteer Month.” The Philadelphia Book Bank is one of six volunteer activities. And you can now sign up for more than one event. If there is a waitlist, we will consider offering this volunteer opportunity again in the fall.
