Big thanks to MC’s Leland Speed Library for donating books to send to prisoners today! Thanks to the MC English Dept and Catholic Student Association for sorting and packing them, and thanks to volunteers Emily & Chris for coordinating!
We are sending books like crazy these days! Here are some items we need to keep things rolling:
-Postage funds (each package costs between $3-5, and we spend around $150 at each packing party on postage.)
-Books by black authors
-Composition books (Dollar Tree has really nice ones)- we send around 25 of these each week.
-Large Packing Tape Dispensers
-Healthy non-perishable snacks- our volunteers come straight from work and don’t have dinner. Plant-based snacks are great so all volunteers can enjoy!
Thanks to our new friends from Sunflower County Freedom Project who traveled all the way from Indianola after a long day at school and spent their Friday night with us packing books for prisoners. Come back and visit soon! 👋💕
We are honored to have the voices of prisoners represented in this powerful exhibition. Stop by tonight at 6pm for the opening reception. The exhibition runs until April 15th
