Books to Oregon Prisoners mailing day Saturday May 14th noon-4 pm

Books to Oregon Prisoners is having their monthly mailing day Saturday May
14th, from noon to 4 pm, at Reflections Bookstore 330 N. Killingsworth.
BTOP sends books and educational materials to people incarcerated in Oregon who have little or no support on the outside. Just as important as empowering prisoners to educate themselves is involving the community and spreading awareness of the Prison-Industrial complex.

Volunteers are needed to respond to inmate's letters and package books. BTOP also provides an opportunity for friends and family of inmates to send books from our catalog to their loved one for a $5 suggested donation (to cover mailing costs). Please come help out on Saturday or help spread the word among your friends!
