New Volunteers: Next Orientation is Sunday, July 26

LightInTheDark

You can help make this kind of difference to the thousands of incarcerated women we reach every year.

Join us for our next orientation session, led by one of our experienced volunteers, Sunday, July 26, 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 August 30 orientation or whenever you can. Rarely available on Sundays? There are lots of other ways to get involved and help get books in the hands of women in prison. We’d love to hear from you.
