Friendly Eights, Hosts Needed

Friendly Eights is a fun way for families to socialize and get to know one another better through hosting and attending casual, simple and cozy potluck meals in each other's homes. The host provides the main course and the venue. Each guest brings something for the meal: an appetizer, salad or dessert – something that they would normally serve in their own home and would like to share.

Collection Drives

For a full list of items being collected through various PC efforts, please visit Collection Drives.

Gummere Library (Upper & Middle Schools)

Housed in the main building and adjacent to the tech center, the Gummere Library is a bustling place. Volunteers are needed throughout the year to help re-shelve books and pull books on particular topics.  Volunteers are also needed at the end of the year to inventory books.  Please contact Lauren Rosenfeld for details on the very flexible volunteer schedule.  

Trask Library (Lower School)

The Trask Library is a cozy place to spend some spare time, and you probably will have some fun there, too!  Volunteers are needed throughout the year to help out with library tasks, such as re-shelving books, covering books, checking books in and occasionally working on special projects, like the Book Fair.  For volunteer times, please contact Sarah Satterfield.  


Volunteering at Penn Charter provides a feeling of fulfillment and connection to my sons' world.
