Kelsey saw a bunch of cars parked outside our space today and was asking if he could wash cars. One of our volunteers asked if he could vacuum the inside after they dropped off some books at the thrift store across the street.
“Are you giving those books away? I love books. Can I look through them first?”
We told him about our mission and his eyes got wide. “Oh my God, I just got out of Parchman. I can’t believe I’m meeting you guys!” Kelsey had received books from us on the inside.
Kelsey is starting a car detailing business and is currently at a halfway house. We asked him to pick out all the books he wanted from the shelves. Here’s what he chose.
