Celebrating NPTM this October

This pandemic has made access to food, cleaning supplies, and books quite difficult. Our chapter has selected two organizations, A Wider Circle and East City Book Shop, to donate to as a collective action for PT Month 2020. 

Donations for A Wider Circle can be found here and include items such as laundry detergent and dish soap, which will help support DC residents in Ward 8. 

Donations for East City Book Shop can be found here and include a variety of books for bibliophiles of all ages. 

APTADC has developed 3 on demand courses to fulfill the Mayor’s Public Health Priorities. Members can access these courses for free.
