2020 MLK Day of Service Recap

A big thanks to the Lewis & Clark College students who reached out to us about doing an MLK Day of Service project with Portland Books to Prisoners.



The students came to our office at 14 NE Killingsworth and volunteered a few hours on Saturday, January 25. Together, we were able to work on and even complete many tasks that the B2P crew alone just doesn't have time to address on our usual Tuesday volunteer sessions.


These awesome student volunteers started painting our new Books to Prisoners logo on our A-frame sign, cleaned out, painted, and stained our planter boxes in the front, checked 3 boxes of books to see if any had value on eBay (so we can use the funds from sales to pay for more postage to send out more requested books to inmates), alphabetized our most popular sections so finding books can be easier, and cut up some paper bags to be used as package wrapping in the future.

We are so thankful for these volunteers!
