CASA and RJI at Prison Book Program (In Person)

  • Saturday, November 5
  • 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Join CASA and the RJI as we return to one of our newer CASA efforts! The Prison Book Program sends books to prisoners to support their educational, vocational, and personal development and to help them avoid returning to prison after release. The program is housed in a historic church in Quincy, where we will read prisoner letters with book requests, search the inventory room for books to match the requests, and process, invoice, and wrap book packages. Education has been shown to reduce recidivism and the books we share can also offer connection, open doors, and change a life. Join CASA as we practice compassion and take positive steps on behalf of this often forgotten population.
