Philadelphia Eagles players Jon Dorenbos and Chris Maragos dressed up as Dr. Seuss’ Thing 1 and Thing 2 Monday to kick off the inaugural Santander Holiday Book Drive.
The players read their favorite Dr. Seuss stories to local kids from the Eagles Youth Partnership (EYP) and Philadelphia Public Schools. The children then played football-themed games and were given a tour the stadium.
The story time celebration serves to launch Santander Bank’s Holiday Book Drive, taking place now through Dec. 11. Fans can visit one of 60 participating Santander Bank locations in the Greater Philadelphia area to donate books appropriate for kids ages 3 through 12.
The Santander Holiday Book Drive benefits EYP, a nonprofit organization that serves more than 50,000 low-income children in Greater Philadelphia. EYP will join Santander in donating the books to high-need Philadelphia public schools.
