Donate a toy December 10 - 15 in exchange for "Buy One, Get One Free" admission to ESP.
One in 28 American kids has a parent behind bars. What are the holidays like for these families?
Eastern State Penitentiary is partnering with The Institute for Community Justice to collect gifts for local children with incarcerated parents. From Tuesday, December 10 through Sunday, December 15, any Eastern State visitor who donates a new toy or children's book, in its original packaging (but please no gift wrap), will be granted a second admission free of charge.
The Institute for Community Justice is a Philadelphia-based initiative committed to community justice: the community-inspired, community-led solutions for healing in a time of mass imprisonment.
Please feel free to donate new toys or children's books at Eastern State during public hours, even if you're not planning to take a tour. The BOGO offer ends December 15, but we'll keep collecting through January 1. Thank you in advance for helping us spread holiday cheer this season.
