Volunteers were greeted with gift bags that included free volunteer passes to cultural institutions in the greater Philadelphia region, a flash drive of resources that volunteers can use with learners, a 50th anniversary  Commemorative CD songs from The Sound of Philadelphia catalog, Visit  Philadelphia swag, and other goodies.
