12th Annual Volunteer Work Week
At the American Philatelic Center
100 Match Factory Place, Bellefonte, PA 16823
July 17-21, 2023
Volunteer Work Week Participants make a difference!!
What to Expect
The week begins on Monday at 9 a.m. with a welcome reception, followed by a tour of the American Philatelic Center. Participants will then “get to work” on a project in an assigned department. The amount of time and number of days spent volunteering are up to each individual participant. There are many projects to be accomplished during the week, in every department, so volunteer time is thoughtfully utilized by staff.
The American Philatelic Research Library and Circuit Sales will maintain their normal operating hours during Voluntunteer Work Week, there will be a "Treasure Station" for those hoping to make interesting finds in a large pile of stamps, and a mid-week “thank-you” luncheon will take place on Wednesday, July 19th to share stories and compare notes on the accomplishments and finds of the week.
Travel, lodging, and most food will be the participants' responsibility, but your out of pocket expenses are tax deductible. See Local Lodging for ideas where to stay.
*Anyone who registers after June 6th will not receive a t-shirt*
