Prisoners Literature Project

PLP volunteer session canceled – May 27th, 2018!

May 2018  |  Published in Latest News

PLP VOLUNTEERS: we will be open as normal next Sunday (May 20th) for our 2pm to 6pm session at Grassroots House, but the meeting on Memorial Day weekend (Sunday, May 27th – 2pm to 6pm) is canceled.

This is due to another Grassroots House group needing the space – but we’re continuing all of our other volunteering sessions as per normal. Thanks for helping us keep less than 2 months behind in answering prisoner letters, despite getting 300+ per week!
