A Letter of Thanks

Dear Penn Community,

Thank you for making this one of the most successful holiday gift giving seasons. Your generosity was unprecedented. Many benefited from your willingness to give.

Thank you to President Amy Gutmann for hosting an Annual Holiday Party where over 400 toys and gifts were collected. Thank you to the many departments that brought joy to more than 35 families during the holidays by “adopting” them (see www.upenn.edu/almanac/volumes/v52/n17/joy.html).

Thank you to the entire University community for donating over one thousand gifts and toys. Thank you to the Dropsite Volunteers that collected all the gifts and toys and made it possible for us to respond to request for donations from our neighbors listed below: Councilwoman Jannie L. Blackwell’s Holiday Dinner for the Homeless; Bridges To The Community; Carroll Park Community Council; Children’s Services, Inc. at Shaw Middle School; Church of New Hope & Faith, Inc.; Family Support Program; Fan’s View Youth Empowerment Program; Potter’s House Mission; Salvation Army; Second Antioch Church; Word Tabernacle Baptist Church.

Thanks to Amy Forsyth for coordinating the Annual Coat Drive. This year, our Penn Coat Drive benefited the Annual Philadelphia Cares Winter Coat Drive. Thank you for your generosity!

—Isabel Mapp, Associate Director, Faculty, Staff and Alumni Volunteer Services, Director, PennVIPS, Center for Community Partnerships
