NEW: monthly Sunday morning volunteer sessions!

June 2018  |  Published in Announcements, Latest News

Have you been to our Sunday volunteer sessions but just found them a bit TOO busy? The PLP is starting monthly Sunday morning volunteer sessions!

These will be from 10am to 2pm – that should be quieter & more manageable than the busiest Sunday sessions, since we’re looking to catch up further on our backlog of prisoner letters!

The first two of these are on Sunday, June 24th & Sunday, July 22nd from 10am to 2pm at Grassroots House in Berkeley, ahead of our regular weekly Sunday 2pm to 6pm sessions. (If you’re staying over lunch, you can either bring something to eat, or we’ll order some food for the group.)

Please spread the word!
