Donate toys for kids with incarcerated parents

This is the last weekend to drop off a new toy or children's book at this historic prison museum. They'll be wrapped and given as gifts to local children with incarcerated parents. (One in 28 American kids has a parent behind bars.) Bonus: You'll get BOGO admission to ESP for your kindness.

Where: Eastern State Penitentiary at 2027 Fairmount Ave., 19130

When: December 23, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. to December 24, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.

How much: A new toy or book
