More December Volunteer Opportunities

Below are more ways to help the community. Additional volunteer opportunities were published in the December AT PENN calendar, see www.upenn.edu/almanac/volumes/v52/n13/deccal05.html.

Coat Drive Through December 15: Does your gently used winter coat still have some serviceable miles on it? Warm coats in good condition, for both children and adults, are needed by a number of charitable organizations in the Philadelphia area. We do not have the facilities or funds to clean donated items. Freshly laundered (or recently cleaned) items are especially appreciated. Bring in your gently used coats to be donated to area shelters.

For the third year in a row, the Linguistics Department is working with the Penn Volunteers in Public Service, Center for Community Partnerships office, in organizing a Winter Coat Drive. If you have a coat (or coats) to contribute to our drive, you are welcome to donate them at either of the locations listed below.

Linguistics 619 Williams Hall Amy Forsyth 898-6046
CCP 133 South 36th/5th Floor Isabel Mapp 898-2020

Contact Isabel Mapp at (215) 898-2020 or send an e-mail: sammapp@pobox.upenn.edu or Amy Forsyth at (215) 898-6046 or aforsyth@babel.ling.upenn.edu for additional information and/or to make a donation.

E-Mentoring: Join an exciting new mentoring program.  All that is required is that you e-mail your mentee once a week. Through the use of technology, provide support to high school students to improve graduation rates from local public high schools and increase interest in attending college.
