File us under 793.8! This chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance is for teens and tweens in the New Braunfels area and is sponsored by the New Braunfels Public Library. Started in 2016, this chapter is active during the summer months to give local youth a chance to participate in service activities to benefit the community.
During their first summer of existence, teens and tweens decided to focus on running a toiletries drive for the local homeless population. Chapter members designed social media posts to advertise the drive, organized the resulting donations, and decided which organization to donate their spoils to. In their off time, they also created dozens of cards to brighten the days of hospitalized kids.
