Magazines, other reading materials needed

Linglestown resident Bill Minsker is in need of magazines, library books, dictionaries and classic novels to send to educational and library institutions in Poland. His nonprofit organization, Pennsylvania Partners Abroad (PPA), has been doing this since 1990, and his supply of materials is nearly depleted.

Time is short to help out because Bill is leaving for his annual five months of teaching in Warsaw, Poland, on Jan. 22.

For more information or to make arrangements to contribute materials, contact Bill via e-mail or call him at the PPA office at (717) 545-9574.
