September 2020
The Transition Network Philadelphia Chapter
A MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR AND CO-CHAIR
Greetings!

Why is it that September always feels like a new start? Conditioning from “back-to-school” time? People returning from summer vacations? Change of weather? Whatever the reason, we all seem to be ready to hit the ground running in the fall.

HELP PHILADELPHIA CHILDREN READ...VIRTUALLY!
Join other TTN members in the Achieve Now program to coach Philadelphia primary school children to become proficient readers.

GIVING CIRCLE SAVE THE DATES!
The TTN Philadelphia Giving Circle grant cycle kicks off in October! Check out GC's upcoming events.

SUMMER IS ENDING- LET'S PLAN AHEAD!
The dog days of summer typically give way to the new school year and we make our plans for the fall. This year everything is topsy turvy. TTN women are still asking to make new connections via Peer Groups. So let’s plan ahead!

GET READY FOR OUR THIRD ANNUAL BOOK DRIVE!

TTN Philadelphia will hold its Third Annual Children’s Book Drive from Monday October 5 through Friday October 16. Given the impact of Covid-19 on city children’s education, the need for book donations this year is greater than ever!

Join the Central Ohio chapter for a “Hot-Off-The-Press” virtual showcase which will feature five TTN member authors, including Anna Maria DiDio from Philly, who have published books this year.
