for Bellingham Books to Prisoners

There is a bin by the Wilson entrance for the BOOK DRIVE for Bellingham - Books to Prisoners program. It will be there until Friday, March 9th.
Bellingham Books To Prisoners is an all-volunteer, Washington State non-profit group that sends free books to prisoners throughout the U.S. They are an affiliate of the Seattle Books To Prisoners ( Letters from prisoners are sent to Seattle, then... forwarded to us. We are responsible for getting donated books, finding volunteers, and raising money for postage and supplies. Seattle receives over 1200 letters a month from prisoners; last year Bellingham answered 3260 of those letters.
