Volunteers are needed to help pack 13,000 literacy bags for Philly’s children for Reading Promise Week. Multiple shifts are available from Monday, September 19 through Thursday, September 22, and Monday, September 26 through Friday, September 30 at 6801 N 16th St Philadelphia, PA 19126 (Your Child’s World Learning Center—West Oak Lane).
Reading Promise Week runs from Monday, October 10 through Sunday, October 16, 2022. Thanks to the hard work of hundreds of partners, Philly’s annual family literacy festival is bringing 40 free literacy events to neighborhoods citywide. And this year, we’ll be giving away 13,000 literacy bags and children’s books—and we could use a hand (or 100) packing them!
Reading Promise Week is a time for Philly to come together and celebrate literacy for our youth. Its beauty and impact come directly from the power of community.
