CrochetedToysMed

Recently we heard from Padrica H. in Florida, who sent us a couple of the holiday decorations she makes for members of the armed services. She included this note:

Again thank you for your kindness. I love giving these out to put a little cheer in your space. Please accept them in the spirit of goodwill, peace and love.

See why what we do means a lot to the women we serve. Join us for our next new volunteer orientation, led by one of our experienced volunteers, Sunday, August 30, 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 time, plan now to join us for the Sunday, September 27 orientation. Or check out the other ways you can get involved and help women in prisons around the country enjoy the self-empowerment, education, and entertainment that reading provides.
