Books to Prisons Ministry

Foundry is  the current home of the DC Books to Prisons Project, which meets every Wednesday at 6:00 pm in B2 to answer requests for reading material from prisoners and mail books free of charge to those who would otherwise have little opportunity to improve their education. We accept donations of PAPERBACK books from the community in order to help us fulfill the requests of prisoners. Please bring all donations to the Welcome Desk - on days other than Wednesday evening, please only bring one brown paper bag full; for donations being brought on the Wednesday evening, two brown paper bags are permited. For large donations (more than one paper box size or two brown paper bags) please call ahead to ensure we are able to receive all of your donation at this time: 202-332-4010. We thank you for helping us with this mission.
