Great Falls Books Through Bars March Volunteer Day
March 14 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Please join us for our monthly volunteer day! We’ll be reading letters and packing books to send out to people in a prison.
No experience needed and all ages are invited! We’d love to see you!
***WE NEED DICTIONARIES*** if you have any to spare we need ’em!
If you cannot make it, please consider donating:
Or checking out our wish list:
Supplies We Need: We can always use extra manila envelopes, paper bags, and packing tape. We are constantly receiving requests for almanacs, thesauruses, thrillers, westerns, street lit, mysteries, wicca, occult and pagan books — so if you’ve got some paperbacks in these genres that you’re ready to let go of, we’ll gladly take ’em off your hands!
Also, we are still collecting donations for the Western Mass Prison Abolition Network! They are creating backpacks full of necessities for people recently released from jail, often onto the street with no rides or resources. If you can, bring something from the list below to Volunteer Day: Backpacks, Prepaid gift cards/Visa, Toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, pads/tampons, shampoo, floss, lotion), Food/Water (water bottles, granola bars, other prepackaged/dry goods (non-perishables, no-prep needed).
