Ben Heely, featured volunteer

Ben Heely has been volunteering at Books To Prisoners two nights each week for the last eight weeks.  He is currently studying Computer Science at Edmonds Community College.  After having no luck finding a summer job, Ben specifically looked for an interesting volunteer opportunity.

Q:  What keeps you coming back?
