A sponsored artist through WSFS Bank’s partnership with REC Philly, John Butler, known as Cousin John to his readers, created the Chase Books series to introduce young readers to the world of literacy. Chase Books feature African American characters, aiming to connect children and parents through stories they can bond over.
This holiday season John, who is also a sports journalist and social studies teacher, is distributing 100 books to families that have a child on the autism spectrum. To help support his initiative, WSFS Bank purchased the books!
During their department’s holiday luncheon, WSFS’ human resources team was joined virtually by John as they applied WSFS stickers to 100 signed copies of the books, titled Chase Learns to Share, that John and partner schools and organizations will give to families throughout Philadelphia!
