The boxes of unmailed packages at Books to Prisoners never seem to dwindle, and the letters of request for dictionaries, vocational education, literature, business skills and a multitude of other topics continue to arrive at unprecedented rates.
But thanks to generous donors and a two-to-one challenge grant by a private donor, our fall fundraiser made a substantial dent. We brought in more than our target of $3,500, which makes a total of nearly $12,000 to help get those packages out the door.
Our deepest thanks to donors for your contributions. Every donation helps, no matter how small. Since BTP has no paid staff, all donations go directly to cover the cost of postage and mailing supplies, and now the need is greater than ever.
