On Saturday October 21, 2006, Potterdelphia will be participating in Philadelphia Cares Day! This annual volunteer-a-thon helps improve our city's public schools by painting classrooms, restoring playgrounds, and creating green spaces at more than 100 learning centers!

Team Potterdelphia is committed to not only participating in this event, but to donating funds that will be used in improvement projects. If you cannot volunteer to be part of our team, please consider pledging a donation.

Potterdelphia is a social organization of dedicated Harry Potter fans in and around Philadelphia, who gather monthly to discuss theories, characters, and other elements of HP nerdery. Potterdelphia also participates in a variety of volunteer activities that support local children by promoting education and furthering literacy.

On October 21st, join Greater Philadelphia Cares, in partnership with the Philadelphia School District, as we host the 13th Annual Philadelphia Cares Day, a marathon day of service that gives our children attractive and more functional learning environments. More than 100 schools will benefit from fresh coats of paint, refurbished libraries, landscaped green spaces, restored playground equipment, and much more. As one of 15,000 volunteers committed to improving the quality of public education, you will help contribute 60,000 volunteer hours of service, accomplishing the equivalent of 29 people working full time for a year!

This Volunteer-A-Thon raises critical funding for our year-round programs and events. Pledges will enable Greater Philadelphia Cares' volunteers to expand the horizons and self-confidence of children by teaching them to read, rejuvenate neighborhoods ravaged by urban blight, and bridge the widening technology gap in underserved communities. In one day, you can make a world of difference.
