Jaws Book Drive for Treehouse Books

Jaws Book Drive collects 500 books for Treehouse Books

Jaws Youth Playbook partnered with Chico’s to collect over 500 books for National Reading Month in March. The books were donated to Treehouse Books in North Philadelphia. Tree House Books is a Giving Library and Literacy Center that has been providing free books to children and families, and Out of School Time (OST) programs since 2005.  Their mission is to increase literacy skills, and promote a lifelong love of reading and writing.  Unfortunately, many Philadelphia schools do not have a lending library, and many families have few books in their home.  The reading center in North Philadelphia and “The Traveling Tree House“, which is the bookmobile that visits local neighborhoods in Philadelphia, support the “Books in Every Home” Campaign.  Their goal is ensure that every child, every home, has books to support each child’s journey towards a love of reading and a happy, successful life.
