Prisoners Literature Project

Help PLP for Giving Tuesday!

December 2019  |  Published in Announcements, Latest News

We have been sending out more than 250 packages of much-needed books to U.S. prisoners per week, every week so far this year, and your volunteering and monetary support is one of the key things that’s made it possible!

But we also wanted to ask for your help on Giving Tuesday, which is on December 3rd. If you could go to the PLP website & donate on this page – http://www.prisonlit.org/donate/ – via credit card or PayPal.

It’ll really help some of our important special ‘remaindered book’ purchases that have been depleting our savings recently.

These include regular dictionary purchases (our most requested item!) and ‘special request’ books that we custom order for prisoners who particularly need specific titles.
