Philadelphia to Help with Digital Literacy

There have been an additional 108 confirmed cases of COVID-19 announced by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health today. This brings the total of confirmed cases to 25,443.

An additional seven people have lost their lives to the virus, bringing the total of deaths in Philadelphia to 1,570.

As the road to reopening continues, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation has extended the deadline to register for summer camps to Wednesday, July 1. Camps will open Monday, July 6 while following health and safety guidelines based on the Department of Public Health. For more information or to find a camp with space, click here.

Philadelphia wants to ensure no students go hungry this summer. 303 Playstreets have offered lunch and a snack to children up to 18 years old, and more Playstreets will be added as the summer continues.

July 2 will be the last day for meal distribution at Sayre, Finletter, Overbrook Educational Center, Roxborough, Duckery, and Bethune schools.

Starting July 6, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation’s recreation centers will also be offering meals to students. A child must always be present to pick up meals. As new meal sites are set up, they will be added here.

As schools transitioned online, resources became limited to students across the city. The Digital Literacy Alliance (DLA) announced today that three organizations dedicated to providing learning resources to their communities are available to help Philadelphians with technology and internet access. Digital Navigators at the ExCITe Center at Drexel University, the Community Learning Center (CLC), and SEAMACC will all be available via phone.
