BENEFITING: PRISON BOOK PROGRAM
HOURS PLEDGED: 30
The Prison Book Program takes requests from prisoners across the country, picking books out from their donated stocks then packing and shipping them directly to the prisoner. I have done this good work before and can say that their requests provide unique glimpses of where these prisoners came from and where they hope to get as they cope with their difficult present.
Check them out for yourself: http://www.prisonbookprogram.org/
Interesting fact #1: The number one request is a dictionary.
Interesting fact #2: The work is done at the United First Parish Church which contains the graves of Presidents John and John Quincy Adams.
