BENEFITING: TREE HOUSE BOOKS
Help Tree House Books start the school year off right!
On October 7th, we begin Life with Books, our literacy program that lives within the after-school hours. Life with Books provides steady muscle for building community transformers. Each day, literacy coaches partner with young people, ages 6-12, to help them express their identity, voice, and power through reading.
With the threat of Philadelphia schools not opening on time and several schools in our community not opening at all, our neighborhood needs Tree House Books more than ever. And we need your support.
