The university continues to actively monitor the novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") outbreak and provide regular updates to our community. We all play a role in preventing the spread of COVID-19, and we are taking measures to better protect all Terps. As a result, this event is canceled and may be postponed to a later date.

 

Virtual programs including webinars, online book clubs, and other online programs will continue as planned.

 

As part of our commitment to volunteerism, The Philadelphia Terps Alumni Board will be partnering with Cradles to Crayons this spring.  This organization was chosen because of the great work they do providing disadvantaged children in our region from birth through age 12 with the everyday essentials they need to thrive — at home, at school, and at play. This is a tremendous need in Philadelphia because over 134,000 children live in poverty, which translates into kids going to school with shoes and clothes that don’t fit, absent a warm coat to wear, without backpacks or school supplies; and surviving at home or in a shelter with no toys to play with. Our support will be two-fold.  We are participating in a volunteer night on April 7th, 6-8pm at the organization’s headquarters (4700 Wissahickon Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19144) where we will help sort, package and prepare bundles to be distributed to needy children.  In addition, we are asking those that attend any of our events from now through May 31st to bring at least one gently used or new item (for children ages birth – 12 years) with you for our donation box.  All of the items received will be presented to Cradles to Crayons on behalf of the Alumni Association.  Items of greatest need include girls underwear (new only), large boys size clothing, socks, school supplies, books, developmental toys, shoes, jeans/pants, new pajamas, baby bottles and toiletries, baby equipment, and new batteries.  Please join us in supporting this worthy cause.
