The Gift of Reading

Communities In Schools is pleased to announce that we have something very special to celebrate in the New Year.  We are honored to be the recipient of a very generous grant from an Anonymous Fund of The Philadelphia Foundation, made through Team First Book of Philadelphia.  
 
Through the generosity of this grant award, we will be able to provide more than 2500 books to young parents participating in the ELECT Teen Parent Initiative at Communities In Schools of Philadelphia. ELECT is a program provided in partnership with the School District of Philadelphia. We are thrilled to expand our literacy work and bring new books into our students’ homes in 2017 with this wonderful gift!
