New Volunteers: Orientation this Sunday, February 22

It may be cold outside, but you’ll find a warm atmosphere as a volunteer with Chicago Books to Women in Prison. It’s such a simple thing we do—selecting and sending books in response to requests we receive in the mail—and very rewarding.

Note

Join us for our next orientation session, led by one of our experienced volunteers, Sunday, February 22, 1–2 p.m., right before our regular 2–5 p.m. work session. Get the details here.

If you can’t make it this week, plan now to join us for the March 29 orientation or whenever you can. (We hold our orientations on the last Sunday of each month. When it’s a holiday weekend, we may move the orientation date by one week. Check back here for any updates.)

Rarely available on Sundays? There are lots of other ways to get involved and help get books in the hands of women in prison.
