This is important: If you will donate a dollar to us, we will get 3 dollars.
During February and March, A family foundation is offering 2:1 matching funds for any donations to Books to Prisoners. It is all tax-deductible, just tell us you need a receipt. We have never had an offer like this before, so if you can afford to give us anything at all, please - now is the time!
Books to Prisoners is a local, all volunteer project. We receive no funding from the government - and really, we don't want to. The fact is though that we are currently suffering from a concave financial picture; it's like being in a hole, only much sadder. We are BROKE and need money to send our packages out to prisoners.
People in jail are depending on us, so please, if you have anything to spare at all, now is the time. Ideally, we would prefer to have checks, but we will sure take cash!
Please make checks out to:
Portland Books to Prisoners
and send them to:
PO Box 11222
Portland, OR 97211
Or, bring any donations to our workspace at: 1112 NE Morton St., on any Monday or Tuesday evening from 5-8pm. When you drop off your donation, you are welcome to hang around and help if you want, or just check out what we are doing. NE Morton is off of NE Durham, which is between NE Ainsworth and NE Dekum.
Of course, all donations are tax deductible (Oh yeah; I already said that), just let us know if you want a receipt.
Please help us to help those behind bars.
