LETTERS UPDATE: The RAPLine server is down and we have been unable to access letters this past week - we are working on this issue and will respond to you as soon as possible. Bear with us for the next few days as we work with Tech Services to fix the problem, and please reach out to us at 215-573-2727 if you want to talk

You can send an anonymous letter to RAP-Line Online and then retrieve the reply within three days.  Letters can be submitted online any day, 24/7.  To write us a letter, click here
